Shin splints are defined as pain to either side of the leg bone, caused by muscle or tendon inflammation. The condition is commonly related to a collapsing arch, but it may be related to a muscle imbalance between opposing muscle groups in the leg.
Proper stretching and corrective shoes or shoe inserts for pronation can help prevent and relieve the pain of shin splints.
Progressive Podiatry is an ideal choice for both prevention and treatments. To learn more about Progressive Podiatry, or to schedule a consultation with a specialist, please call (859) 331-2440.
