My 11 yr old son, has always trouble with growing pains. When they happen and with hi it frequent it prevented him from sleeping. He would be up crying for a good part of the night. I tried different creams, oils, Tylenol, massaging his legs…. But no significant relief.
Now when the growing pains begin he immediately ask me for a Powerstrip.
I too like Nicole cut them and place one on each calf. Within minutes the pain diminishes, and he is able to get to sleep and get up feeling refreshed and ready for his day.
As a mom, there is no greater feeling than finding something that works to help your child not be in pain.
