Shin Splints

Medial tibial stress syndrome (MTSS), commonly known as shin splints, is thought to occur due to the surface of the bone remodelling in response to stresses and loads placed upon it, usually by exercise.

In the acute phase, rest is advised. Other direct therapies such as steroid injection and shock wave therapy can help.


The most common type of 'shin splint' pain is medial tibial stress syndrome. This manifests as an acute pain on the front on the tibia (shinbone) usually after exercise. This exercise could be running, badminton or any other increase in activity. This pain then subsides when you stop the activity.


Many patients respond well to foot orthoses as the orthoses can correct foot dysfunction making the runner more efficient mechanically. From our own range the X-Line TPD is a good place to start. The choice of insole can vary depending on your foot type and when you get the shin splint pain. Vectorthotic and X-Line RIF are other devices with a proven track record in alleviating shin pain.

If you have suffered with exercise induced leg pain for some time, it would be advisable to seek the opinion of a podiatrist or physiotherapist.
