Shin Splints

Often seeing a Chiropodist / Podiatrist can lead to such a significant improvement in symptoms that your overall posture and gait improve. Even if you have no symptoms in your feet, correction of functional alignment problems in the feet can improve symptoms elsewhere in the body, and help prevent future difficulties.

A small structural or functional imbalance in the foot may often cause no pain at all. Instead, it may cause problems in the ankles, knees, hips, back, or even neck – all parts of the body that are connected to the feet by the skeleton. That effect may show as pain, instability, restricted movement, or in some cases, just fatigue. Aching shins, especially when running is a sign of this fatigue, and the condition is called shin splints. Orthotics are used to resolve the problem as they assist the feet to function more efficiently. They do this by influencing joint movement, and by altering some joint forces to prevent excessive tissue stress.
