Shin Splints: pain anywhere along the shinbone typically due to an overuse injury, commonly seen in runners and athletes. The primary cause of shin splints is the overuse of the involved muscle and tendon. Another major cause is overpronation (See Excessive Foot Pronation Video Clip) or arch flattening. The tibialis anterior and tibialis posterior muscles help support your arch and become overworked when the arch flattens. This results in pain and inflammation.
Properly designed biomechanical orthotics (the kind we offer) are the most effective treatment for shin splints. Our orthotics tackle both the current painful condition and prevent re-occurrence over the long term. Our orthotics cradle your arch relieving the stress on the muscles you’ve damaged. This is essential in correcting the structural cause of the problem: a falling arch with each step.
