It’s important not to run through the pain and come and see us early, otherwise the issue can get worse resulting in a longer period of rehabilitation before return to activity.
Diagnosing shin pain
We understand how painful shin pain can be, particularly after exercise. It often starts when people are getting back into exercise or when you suddenly increase the distance or pace of your running. It can be caused by wearing poorly fitting trainers that don’t cushion and support your feet in the right way. Other times it’s triggered by having flat feet, feet that roll inwards (pronation) or tight calf muscles, weak ankles or tight Achilles tendon.
We offer a wide range of treatments, including supportive inserts for your shoes (orthotics) to reduce the pressure on your shins. With shin pain, it’s important to plan your return to regular activity and build it up gradually – don’t do too much, too soon.
