Do you suffer from pain at the front or side of your legs?
Deep pain on the front or inside aspect of your legs during walking and running can often be so bad that it prevents you from participating in these activities.
The pain is often due to inflammation of the soft tissue attachment of your leg muscles to the adjoining bone and gladwrap-like bone lining called the periosteum.
Your individual walking and running style is the direct result of the architecture and function of your feet, called biomechanics. Our experienced Podiatrists, who have a keen interest in these biomechanical related problems, can assess how you walk and run. They may use a computerised gait analysis system to assist in this process. We can then help you in overcoming this shin pain with the possible use of prescription orthotics or shoe inserts, in conjunction with all important footwear advice and guiding you with the correct exercises.
For more detailed information, see our Acrobat pdf Information sheets on shin splints which is available on our website.
