Treatment for Shin Splints

Shin splint treatment and fast recovery

Shin splints, also referred to as tibial stress syndrome, is a condition that many athletes get at one time or another, especially runners and cyclists. The symptoms of shin splints can be throbbing or aching in the shins and can be contributed to underlying issues, such as irritated and swollen muscles, stress fractures, or overpronation, also called “flat feet,” which collapses the arch of the foot and puts stress on the muscles and tendons in the leg.

The treatment for shin splints at Prevent & Fix of Scottsdale, AZ is in healing the stressed muscles and tendons and preventing further stress on the tibia. Therefore, it is important to use deep tissue therapy in working out the inflammation in the leg and foot muscles, as well as strengthening the muscles by giving them healthy circulation. Additional treatments are to stay off your feet as much as possible and a vitamin regiment for a faster recovery.

If left untreated, it can result in calf strains, which are treatable by Grigor, but require more sessions. If the leg cannot be used to walk whatsoever, then please see your doctor right away.
