Shin Splints

Shin Splints


Shin Splints are a painful inflammation of the origin of the anterior tibialis muscle


    • It is caused by relative weakness or overuse of the anterior tibialis and tightness of the calf muscles
    • Since the anterior tibialis helps support the medial longitudinal arch, and since tibial stress syndromes are significantly reduced by wearing insoles, Insoles that support the arch will help this condition.


    • ¬†Medial longitudinal arch support
    • ¬†Anterior tibialis strengthening (front shin)
    • ¬†Gastrocnemius soleus stretching (calf muscle)
    • Proper footwear


    • Since this condition occurs mainly in athletes and active patients rest from activity is crucial. The treatment plan is to be followed.
