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?
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.
