Shin Splints

Do you get pain down the front or side of your shins? Does it get worse with activity? You may have shin splits!

Shin Splints are very common in individuals that perform exercises involving jumping or running.

Shin Splints cause pain, swelling and sometimes throbbing along the bone in the front of your lower leg.

The pain is often brought on by:

  • Repetitive tasks such as jumping, distance running and sports involving a lot of force going through the lower leg such as basketball, gymnastics and athletics
  • Running on hard or uneven surfaces
  • Poor foot mechanics leading to decreased control
  • Improper footwear

If left untreated this condition can lead to stress fractures in the shin that can keep you away from training for several months or cause ongoing pain.

Physiotherapy is very effective at treating this condition. At Trilogy Physiotherapy we will determine the cause of the irritation and treat the underlying factors to ensure the condition doesn’t continually return.

Some methods used to treat this include but are not limited to:

  • Soft tissue massage
  • Myofascial release with Rockblades
  • Dry Needling
  • Joint mobilisation
  • Corrective exercise
  • Taping
