In brief: Yes.

The problem is resistance training in individuals with bones that are not done growing.
If that is you, focus on good form, using low weights, and high reps. Another approach is doing resistance training without weights at all. See this link with embedded video for example: www.Momsteam.Com/health-safety/weight-training-youth-athletes-more-getting-stronger-than-pumping-iron.
