    What are Shin Splints?

    Shin splints is a condition characterized by inflammation and strain in the muscles at the front of the legs. It can impact either leg, though symptoms may be more pronounced on one side. This condition can cause discomfort and pain, especially during physical activities that involve repetitive stress on the lower legs.

    What causes shin splints?

    A: There are several potential causes of shin splints, including equinus (limited ankle flexibility), flat feet, overexertion, and repetitive activity. If you have any of these risk factors or engage in activities that put stress on your lower legs, you may be more susceptible to developing shin splints.

    Q: What symptoms should I look out for?

    A: Common symptoms of this condition may include persistent pain, noticeable swelling, and a significant decrease in the ability to perform daily activities due to discomfort and limited mobility. These symptoms can greatly impact one’s quality of life, making it crucial to seek appropriate medical attention for diagnosis and treatment.

    Q: What should I do if I suspect I have shin splints?

    A: If you experience symptoms of shin splints, such as pain and discomfort along the inner edge of your shin bone, it’s important to consult us. Our team will provide a thorough evaluation of your condition, including a physical examination and possibly imaging tests, to make an accurate diagnosis. Based on the diagnosis, appropriate treatment options will be recommended, which may include rest, ice, compression, elevation, physical therapy, or orthotic devices. Don’t delay; schedule your appointment today to get the expert care you need and get back on track to pain-free activities!
