About Shin Splints
The term “Shin Splints’ ‘ is used to refer to the pain a person experiences along the inside of the shin bone, or front of the lower leg. Runners and dancers are prone to shin splints due to the nature of their movements.
Recovering From SHIN SPLINTS
Shin splints will often go away on their own, especially when proper rest, and recovery steps are taken. However, if the shin splits don’t clear up quickly, your chiropractor will look for other problems that may be contributing to the pain. This includes examining your spine, hips, knees and feet for misalignments. Your chiropractor may also make adjustments in your foot joints, ankle, knee, SI joint or low back. This can relieve the pain from shin splints, or prevent them from happening again.
