Why do I get shin splints?

The Cause of Shin Splints 

"Shin splints" is a catch-all term for lower leg pain that is usually caused from abnormal stress to the muscles, tendons, ligaments and bones in the lower extremity.

There are a number of factors contributing to shin splints such as overpronation of the foot, inadequate stretching, wearing worn or poorly fitting shoes, or excessive stress placed on one leg or hip.  Another common finding associated with shin splints is a misalignment of the talus (ankle bone).

When you run, the talus naturally rotates relative to the tibia & fibula (the two lower leg bones).  After prolonged stress to the foot and ankle, the talus will often lose its healthy alignment becoming locked in an abnormally rotated position.  This is a misalignment problem and it causes great stress on the soft tissues between the tibia and fibula.

Shin SplintsThis talus misalignment will cause pressure between the two lower leg bones.  As a result the fibula will splay apart from the tibia.  This slight spreading apart of the two lower leg bones will cause significant stress and strain on several of the muscles and supporting soft tissues in the leg and calf.

Continued running will exacerbate this condition causing the leg pain to become unbearable.  Runners and other athletes may have to discontinue all activity for a period of time until the pain subsides.  However there is a very effective solution for shin splints without having to discontinue your activities in most cases.

Specific chiropractic adjustments to the ankle and foot joints will alleviate much of the stress on those strained leg muscles, tendons and ligaments.  When the talus regains its healthy alignment, that stretching force between the tibia and fibula becomes relaxed.

The fact that we adjust the feet and ankles is unique for chiropractors.  Where most chiropractors focus mostly on the spine, we also attract many patients for conditions involving the feet, knees and other extremity joints.  Our foot patients love getting their feet adjusted!

  1. I am bold enough among many others to state that there is now a potent cure to this sickness but many are unaware of it. I discovered that I was infected with the virus 3 months ago, after a medical check-up. My doctor told me and I was shocked, confused and felt like my world has crumbled. I was dying slowly due to the announcement of my medical practitioner but he assured me that I could leave a normal life if I took my medications (as there was no medically known cure to Herpes). I went from churches to churches but soon found that my case needed urgent attention as I was growing lean due to fear of dying anytime soon. In a bid to look for a lasting solution to my predicament, I sought for solutions from the herbal world. I went online and searched for every powerful trado-medical practitioner that I could severe, cos I heard that the African Herbs had a cure to the Herpes syndrome. It was after a little time searching the web that I came across one Dr Itua(A powerful African Herbal Doctor), who offered to help me at a monetary fee. I had to comply as this was my final bus-stop to receiving a perfect healing. My last resolve was to take my life by myself, should this plan fail. At last it worked out well. He gave me some steps to follow and I meticulously carried out all his instructions. Last month, to be precise, I went back to the hospital to conduct another test and to my amazement, the results showed that negative,Dr Itua Can As Well Cure The Following Desease…Cancer,Hiv,Herpes,Shingles, Hepatitis B,Liver Inflammatory,Diabetis,Fribroid,Parkinson's,Alzheimer’s disease,Bechet’s disease,Crohn’s disease,Cushing’s disease,Heart failure,Multiple Sclerosis,HypertensionFatal Familial Insomnia Factor V Leiden Mutation ,Epilepsy Dupuytren's disease,Desmoplastic small-round-cell tumor Diabetes ,Coeliac disease,Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease,Cerebral Amyloid Angiopathy, Ataxia,Arthritis,Amyotrophic Lateral Scoliosis,Autism,Fibromyalgia,Fluoroquinolone ToxicitySyndrome Fibrodysplasia Ossificans ProgresSclerosis,Seizures,Adrenocortical carcinoma.Asthma,Allergic diseases,,Copd,Glaucoma., Cataracts,Macular degeneration,Cardiovascular disease,Lung disease.Enlarged prostate,Osteoporosis.
