Shin Splints

Shin Splints

What are they?

Shin Splint is a generalised term, which has been known to describe anything from tibial stress fractures to muscle overuse. The term is generally used to describe pain localised in the front of the lower leg.

How do we treat them? Again, due to the broad nature of the diagnosis of shin splints, a number of effective treatment regimes exist. Our experienced podiatrists may recommend treatment including a muscular stretching / strengthening programme, changes to your activity, orthoses, or sessions of deep connective tissue massage. After a detailed assessment our team will be able to provide you with specifics regarding the treatment plan that’s right for you.

 

Cause: With so many complaints possible, to define a particular cause is difficult. However when diagnosed most people describe a recent increase in activity. It may also be related to an imbalance in your muscles. Finally, overly pronated feet have also been known to contribute
