Shin splints or Shin pain

Shin Splints are the general term used to refer to pain or inflammation that occurs either in the front or along the inside section of the shin or lower leg. The tightness and tenderness that occurs with activities such as walking or running can be quite debilitating and prevent you from participating in these activities.

Excessive force and overuse of the muscles and tendons along the shin is often the cause of this shin pain. The team at Walk On Podiatry are able to provide a thorough assessment enabling them to diagnose your shin pain and develop a management plan specific for you.

There are going to be some feet that may present as a greater challenge than others. However, with the necessary adjustments and some fine tuning I still think it is possible to design and create an orthotic that provides comfort while providing efficient foot function. Read More...
