It is called the growth spurt, and there is no doubt that during puberty, there is a dramatic growth spurt. However, it doesn’t have to end there. What we actually look at are the growth plates. We see if the growth plates close. When they close is when that growth period usually ends to a large extent. There still are a few inches here and there to gain, but certainly not to the degree of prior to the growth spurt. However, the growth spurt is a time where you will see your child eating a great deal more, having those classic growing pains, and yes, getting taller.
