Turn to us if you are experiencing shin pain or would like to prevent it.
If you are experiencing pain on the front portion of your lower leg, this is referred to as shin pain. The pain can be anywhere between the knee and the ankle or even the entire area. The most common cause of shin pain is an inflammation in the soft tissue and muscle that is located in the lower leg. However, it can also be caused by a tibia stress fracture, sciatica, peripheral vascular disease, or peripheral neuropathy due to diabetes and other conditions.
When shin pain is the result of shin splints or other musculoskeletal causes, there are various treatments that can help. At York Foot Orthotics and Bracing, we do a complete assessment to determine the cause for the shin pain and then recommend the right treatment for the situation. One tool in our arsenal is custom orthotics. Orthotics work to put the foot in the best position possible and help with shock absorption, taking pressure off the affected area.
We will also advise you on things you can do to aid in healing, such as having proper footwear, stretching properly before activity, sticking to even terrain that isn’t too hard for your exercise surface, switching to low-impact activities, and not overdoing it when you are experiencing pain. Proper footwear and orthotics can also help you avoid shin splints and other shin pain, so if you are an active person, don’t hesitate to reach out to us to learn more.
