Shin Splints Treatment?

If you are wondering why you have shin splints and how to treat them, read on.

Shin splints primarily affect runners and can be the result of a number of factors.  At KINETIC we always start the treatment with a thorough assessment to understand why you have the Shin Splints and what are the underlying causes of the problem.

Shin Splints can plague people for months and left untreated can stop people from running.  Some of the reasons for shin splints are as follows:

  • Gait imbalances,
  • Pronation and Supination of the feet
  • Weak Glutes
  • Weak Core
  • Imbalances in the pelvis
  • Tight calves
  • Un-even surfaces when running
  • The list goes on

The question is, however, how does one treat shin splints?
