Orthotics for Shin Splints

what causes shin splints?

Help for Shin Splints begins with the ground.

More specifically, HOW Each Foot Handles Gravity EVERY TIME it makes contact with the GROUND.

With every step taken, stress travels up from the foot & into the shin.

Since the shin is not designed to handle this unrelenting stress, you get pain. 

Shin Splints is an Overuse Injury of the lower leg most commonly seen in those with poor running technique.

Shin split pain can be felt anywhere along the length of the shinbone aka tibia.

-Overpronation IS the Primary Cause of Shin Splints-

Overpronation means the foot is a bad shock absorber… a bad spring! 

In the above video, overpronation is seen when the arch flattens and squishes down at :05.

Overpronation means the arch drops, foot slams into the ground, and stress goes UP.

Instead of absorbing shock as a healthy foot would, stress travels up into the shin and the periosteum of the bone begins to separate from the underlying layer – OUCH!

The longer this happens, the worst the pain and longer it takes to recover. 

You’ve managed to completely overwhelm this area and now it’s screaming out in pain.
