Shin Splints

Shin splints are a common complaint throughout the athletic world and are caused in most cases by repetitive overuse. The condition refers to frontal lower leg pain and can be related to muscle, bone or tendon problems.

Should you find yourself suffering from any of the symptoms mentioned below, we would recommend visiting with one of our highly qualified therapists, who will assist you with a treatment programme and advise on how to avoid the injury in the future.

  • Muscle pain (exercise induced compartment syndrome)
  • Tendon discomfort (medial tibial stress syndrome)
  • Bone pain (stress fractures)

All of our shin splints treatment programmes are tailored to meet the patients specific needs and not only aim to treat the problem area but also to educate sufferers on how to avoid future damage.

Left untreated, shin splints can take an excessive amount of time to heal and can lead to further stress on the shinbone. In your initial consultation Eddie O’Grady will outline a recommended treatment programme to suit your specific condition.
