Shin Splints

Shin splints is the common name for medial tibial stress syndrome. It is characterised by pain anywhere along the shinbone from the knee to the ankle.

Shin splints can be caused by abnormal biomechanics and training errors. Our podiatrists can perform a biomechanical assessment to determine any risk factors.  

Treatment options: 

  • Stretching, strengthening, balance and proprioception exercises 
  • Footwear recommendation  
  • Orthotics 
  • Shockwave therapy  
  • Dry needling
