Shin splints are in some way a “catch all” term for pain along the front or inside of the shin. They normally occur in the anterior region of the shin. At Ballsbridge Physiotherapy Clinic we have many years’ experience of treating many forms of shin injuries, from mild to severe. Our experts will work with you to help you recover and avoid further pain or injury.
Lower limb pain associated with shin splints can have a variety of causes, some of which are:
Shin splint pain Normally comes from the muscles of the shin, but the shin bone can also be a source of pain.You may have dull aching pain along the front of the lower leg or it may occur on either side of the shin. It may also be painful to the touch, depending on the nature of the shin splint.
Some people try to walk or run off the pain, through more exercise. This may not be the correct thing to do. Check with Ballsbridge Physiotherapy Clinic to see what the best course of treatment is for you. We will work with you closely to come up with a tailored made plan to reduce inflammation and pain. Whether it is through orthotics, dry needling or specific exercises, we will aim to get you back on your feet, pain free as soon as possible. It is always best to check with experts rather than self-diagnosing or ignoring the problem, which can exacerbate symptoms. With the right help from your physiotherapist you can also reduce the possibility or recurrence of the pain.
