Don’t let Shin Splints Stop you Running
Do your legs get sore when you run? You might be suffering from Shin Splints. Don’t let shin splints stop you running and performing at your best during the Transcend Trails
Shin Splints are a common problem that our Perth Podiatrists see all the time. They cause pain on the front or sides of the leg which can interfere with your running and daily activities.
Shin Splints are caused by poor foot biomechanics – the leg muscles that get sore have to work extra hard to stabilise the feet. Don’t worry this can be corrected by wearing custom made orthotics that ensure the bones and muscles of the feet are properly aligned. Wearing the right running shoes also makes a huge difference, and our Podiatrists can give you specialised footwear advice.
