Facebook Live- Pre-Season Shin Pain

Facebook Live 23rd January 2020

This time of year sports are returning back and for many pre-season is in full swing unfortunately this can come along with injuries. The most common cause of shin pain the we see at the clinic is medial tibial stress syndrome or as its more commonly know as shin splints. This located on the lower 1/3 on the inside of the shin, generally on both legs.

Our suggestions to avoid this injury are:

  • Wear your sneakers for running/ time trails to provide support and cushioning.
  • Avoid doing to much to soon- have a slow return to training
  • Train and run on softer surfaces such as grass where possible

You can book an appointment at SA Running Injury Clinic Online or over the phone. Please note we have two clinics.
