Shin Splints - Periostitis
Shin splints is
a pain in the front of the lower leg, often as a result of inflammation
of the sheath surrounding the bone, may be periostitis. Shin splints
arise from running too much on hard surfaces, and on tiptoes. Those who
over pronate (a condition where the foot rolls inwards as one runs or
walks, as evident in uneven wear in the heel portion of the shoes) are
more susceptible to shin splints.
(Periostitis) symptoms : Tenderness and redness on the inside of the
shin, swelling, pain when foot is bent downwards and bumps over the
(Periostitis) treatment : Rest and apply ice to curb pain if necessary.
As pronation can cause other problems for knees and hip bones, it's a
good idea to invest in orthotic heel inserts that can correct the
shin splints (periostitis) problem.
