What are shin splints?

The term "shin splints" describes a painful condition of the shin region associated with overuse, and is characterized by separation of leg muscles from bony attachments. Shin splint injuries occur either in the front (anterior) or the back (posterior) of the lower leg. If left untreated, or if the causes of the injury are not addressed, shin splints can intensify and, in some cases, lead to more serious conditions.

How can stabilizers help my shin splints?

Stabilizers help to optimize your foot posture, which helps to reduce irritation to the affected area. Your doctor may advise you to wear special stabilizers which have built-in pads of shock-absorbing material. These pads help reduce stress and provide needed comfort.
