NEW YORK PODIATRIST, DR. MARC GINSBURG STATES," YOUR SHINS BEAR SIX TIMES YOUR WEIGHT WHILE EXERCISING, SO ACTIVITIES LIKE WALKING AND RUNNING CAN CERTAINLY CAUSE PROBLEMS.  YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE A SUPER ATHLETE TO GET SHIN SPLINTS, A SHARP PAIN IN THE FRONT OF YOUR LEG.  YOU CAN GET THEM WHEN YOU ARE JUST A WALKER. YOU GET THEM WHEN YOU ARE A WEEKEND WARRIOR."

PODIATRIST GINSBURG STATES, " SHINSPLINTS ARE CAUSED BY TIGHT CALVE MUSCLES WHICH PULL ON SOFT TISSUE AND MUSCLE FIBRES ATTACHED TO THE SHIN.  WHEN THOSE MUSCLE FIBRES GET STRAINED AND OVER-STRETCHED, THEY PULL ON THAT PERIOSTEUM WHICH WHEN NERVE ENDINGS, CAUSED THAT EXQUISITE PAIN.  IT'S THE REPETITIVE ACTION ON HARD SURFACES THAT CAUSE MOST PROBLEMS.  THE HARDER THE SURFACE, THE MORE STRAIN IS PUT ON THE LEG BONES."

AT ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS WE TREAT A LOT OF CASES OF SHIN SPLINTS.  THIS USUALLY INVOLVES REST, ICE, STRETCHING AND ART (ACTIVE RELEASE TECHNIQUE).  WE FIND THAT MOST PEOPLE THAT AQUIRE THIS CONDITION HAVE A STRUCTURAL FAULT IN THE FOOT WHICH CAN BE EASILY CORRECTED WITH CUSTOM MADE ORTHOTICS.

IF YOU OR A LOVED ONE WOULD LIKE HONEST, COMPETENT ADVICE ON SHINSPLINTS OR ANY FOOT CONDITION, PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO CONTACT OUR FOOT CLINIC AT 416-465-8737.
