Shin splints is a general term used to describe pain along the shin bone (tibia). It is a common sporting injury, particularly in runners and dancers. The pain is caused by an injury to the muscles, tendons or bone tissue around the shin.

Shin splints often develop due to a rapid increase in the amount of exercise a person does. Contributory factors can be poor footwear, hard running surfaces, poor general fitness level, prior to the increase in training volume and intensity.

The appropriate treatment of shin splints includes rest from the aggravating activity, over the counter pain relief such as paracetamol and ibuprofen, ice packs and physiotherapy. Physiotherapy at our clinics will begin with an extensive bio-mechanical assessment. Treatment will include a combination of ultrasound, massage, acupuncture and expert advice regarding footwear/insoles, running surfaces, stretching and strengthening exercises.
