Shin splints are aching, stabbing and throbbing pain felt anywhere along the shinbone from knee to ankle. Shin splints is the common term for medial tibial stress syndrome. While medial shin splints are more common… Pain may radiate on both sides of the shinbone in severe cases. Shin splints are a repetitive use injury that may occur in Townsville Runners or those who are beginning to exercise and walking long distance while wearing boots e.g. Miners or Australian Armed Forces. Pain occurs when muscles and tendons around the tibia (the largest of the two lower leg bones) become inflamed. Stretching, resting, and applying ice can help relieve shin splints. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) can reduce pain and swelling. Bandaging the area may help prevent swelling. Did you know flat feet increase the risk of shin splints, so good orthotics and proper athletic shoes may offer support and decrease the risk of shin splints.
Now, with the arrival of Bowen Therapy, there is another bowstring in the fight against Shin Splints… From the moment of diagnosis, Bowen Therapy’s Hamstring & Knee Procedures begins reducing pain and swelling of the shin area.
