Shin Splints

What are shin splints?

Shin is irritation at the front of the shin bone (tibia) where the muscles attach. Main shin splint symptoms are pain in the lower leg along the front with some swelling & tenderness caused by overloading the lower leg muscles, tendons & tibia bone in high impact & repetitive activities. You most likely develop shin splints when running.

Treatment for shin splints

Your physiotherapist will physically assess & test to diagnose what shin splint type; use hands on physiotherapy, shockwave therapy, dry needling and taping. Provide & advise exercises for shin splints via our exercise prescription software Salaso and prescribe insoles for shin splints, compression socks or orthotics.

Client Testimonials

Having been dogged with injury I decided to have a full prehab/FMS screen with Colette at Imokilly Physiotherapy and Sports Injury Clinic. My starting score was 12/21 which placed me in a high risk injury bracket but by doing my corrective exercises, I not only played through the whole season un-injured but I also got my score up to 17/21 by the end.

I had spent a significant amount of money elsewhere on unwearable orthotics, before coming to Imokilly Physiotherapy Clinic. The orthotics I got here are by far the most comfortable to wear, and I wouldn't put a pair of shoes on without them!

Having had a long long history of back-pain which was then managed surgically with a dynamic fusion I was nervous about commencing any exercise. My neurosurgeon recommended that I attend a physiotherapist-led clinical Pilates class and I was lucky to find Sarah. Her entire approach is aimed at individualised rehabilitation, namely the individual assessment, tailored exercise programmes, small classes and follow-up emails. The standard of Pilates service is far superior to a fitness-based drop in class, and hence ideal for those with injuries.

Chronic Achilles tendinopathy was limiting my ability to progress my marathon training and I knew that I had to tackle it properly to allow it to heal. Although it was frustrating to step back from training, I am now running painfree and hoping for a marathon PB
