Shin Splints

Are you experiencing a dull throbbing pain along the front of your shin? Especially after running or walking? You are likely dealing with a condition called shin splints.

When our feet excessively roll in it causes the muscles of the foot to overwork to correct this movement. A lot of these muscles originate on the shin bone and pull on it harder than the shin can manage, causing pain where they attach.

Shin splints are treated through a combination of pain management, muscle release and stretching, & biomechanical correction in the form of shoes and orthotics. If you are having problems with shin pain call our reception at (07) 3823 5423 to book an appointment with one of our podiatrists.
