Shin Splints

This is a condition that occurs due to overuse of the muscles of the leg that attach to the tibia or “shin” bone. These muscles become so strained that they pull on the attachment site of the bone and create pain with use. In prolonged cases the muscles pull so hard that fractures can start to form, otherwise known as stress fractures, which further complicate recovery. Active Release Techniques® and Graston Technique® can release the tension on these muscles by eliminating scar tissue deposited within. Icing and modification of activities is required for quick recovery.
