Tendons and Ligaments of the knee: Have you had any trouble with your own kids during this period of growing pains? My own son had an issue with growing pains. Like most occurrences of OS (Osgood-Schlatters) it affects mainly the insides of... the knees and I was more concerned about his comfort as I knew that he would eventually grow out of this condition. It did not make things any easier for me as a parent as I truly felt so sorry for him. It affects kids between 11 and 13 (more or less). My daughter had hyper flexibility and that threw up a complete set of different issues. In fact we regretfully had to pull her out of dancing for a while to try to relieve the pressure on her tendons. Hypermobility syndrome is generally considered to comprise hypermobility together with other symptoms, such as myalgia and arthralgia. It is relatively common among children and affects more females than males. If anyone wishes me to comment on that issue please ask. I will shortly be positing about another issue where a dancer has had painful issues with her toes. I am still working on that. (Diagram is from the website of the Ohio State University)S
