Treating Shin Splints
A Pain in the Leg!After last night's soccer game, your daughter complained that her shins hurt, so you iced her legs before she went to bed. Her legs felt fine after a good night's sleep and you sent her off to school this morning with a kiss and soccer practice clothes in her backpack. Now she's calling and saying that her legs hurt again. Could it be something more than simple pain?
Shin splints are a common injury among athletes - especially runners, sprinters, figure skaters, and gymnasts. The term "shin splints" refers to pain felt in the shinbone or tibia (the large bone in the front of your lower leg) after an athlete has run or "pounded the ground" for a period of time. This force of impact can sometimes cause the muscles around the tibia to tighten, pull, or become inflamed, which leads to pain. Shin splints often respond well to home treatment, but if the pain continues, it's a good idea to have a medical professional check it out just to be sure it's not a stress fracture in your shinbone or another serious condition.
Symptoms of Shin Splints
The most common symptoms of shin splints include:
These symptoms are most likely to occur after you've been running
downhill, on a slanted or tilted surface, or engaging in sports like
basketball or tennis that require frequent starts and stops. You may also
experience shin splints if you're running in worn out footwear, which offer
less support for your feet.
Remember, it's important to avoid overdoing it when you get shin splints.
Take a break from your
recover before gradually working back to your previous athletic level.
