What Are Shin Splints?

by MASS4D® Insoles

Shin Splints

This is a common overuse injury which involves a throbbing pain in the front part of the lower leg or shin. This pain often gets sharper and more intense after exercise or running activities.

Understanding the symptoms and causes of shin splints can help individuals in taking better care of their feet. 

Sudden changes to your routine, such as increasing the intensity of your workouts, or excessive walking, can put lots of strain on your leg muscles, making them vulnerable to shin splints.

A flatfoot posture also increases the likelihood of developing this condition because of the added stress on the muscles of the lower leg during movement.

Shin splints can be treated with simple self-care methods involving rest and application of ice to reduce inflammation.

Chronic or repetitive shin splints need to be evaluated by a health care professional. A complete foot posture analysis should be performed to identify posture problems that could be stressing the muscles, tendons and ligaments of your lower legs.

By including MASS4D® foot insoles in your treatment programme, your foot will be supported in its corrected position.

A properly supported foot structure allows optimal functioning of all lower leg muscles, whilst promoting healing and prevention of shin splints.
