Transcript

  • 1. Shin Splints Treatment <ul><li>The top 7 Causes for Shin Splints and What to Do About Them </li></ul>
  • 2. <ul><li>Shin splints are very common . They're the cause of 13% of all running injuries . Runners might get them after ramping up their workout intensity, or changing the surface they run on -- like shifting from a dirt path to asphalt . Many athletes get shin splints at one point or another, but it can happen to anybody just sprinting to catch the bus. </li></ul>
  • 3. Top 7 Causes and Reasons for Shin Splints <ul><li>Shin splints can be caused by a number of factors which are mainly bio mechanical ( abnormal movement patterns ) and errors in training . Here's a list of the different causes and reasons for this condition, including some that probably never occurred to you: </li></ul>
  • 4. Cause #1 - Inadequate footwear <ul><li>Changing to new running or workout shoes or wear shoes that don't have enough support. This can happen because of wearing your shoes for too long and they wear out. The most recommended are ASICS Running Shoes Solution : Changing to better running shoes with the right support or adding Shock absorbing insoles for your shoes. </li></ul>
  • 5. Cause #2 - Increasing training too quickly <ul><li>Instead of working up to a training level gradually. Solution : Reduce your speed and distance when you run. </li></ul>
  • 6. Cause #3 - Running on hard surfaces <ul><li>Or changing surfaces from what you are used to. For example, from a trail to concrete. Solution </li></ul><ul><li>Run or exercise only on soft surfaces, such as dirt or grass, and run on level ground avoiding hills. </li></ul>
  • 7. Cause #4 - Weak Ankle <ul><li>Decreased flexibility at the ankle joint, tight achilles tendon or weak ankle muscles. Solution </li></ul><ul><li>Daily stretches of your calf and front of leg. You can find an excellent stretch here: </li></ul><ul><li>http :// natural - alternative - therapies . com / shin - splints - treatment / </li></ul>
  • 8. Cause #5 - Overpronation of the feet <ul><li>Pronation is the movement of the subtalar joint. Pronation occurs as the foot rolls inwards and the arch of the foot flattens. Over pronation can cause injury and pain in the foot and ankle. Look at your running shoes: If they are worn on the inside of the sole in particular, you could be suffering from overpronation. Solution </li></ul><ul><li>Get a running shoe with extra medial support. It gives extra support for the load and prevents the foot from rolling or flattening. Also, you can get Orthotic Insoles </li></ul>
  • 9. Cause #6 - Flat feet <ul><li>Some people have flat arches in their feet, which can make the feet roll inward when running - possibly causing shin splints. Solution </li></ul><ul><li>Again, running shoes with Extra medial support . </li></ul>
  • 10. Cause #7 - Bone Trauma <ul><li>Bone trauma to the lower leg can result in stress fractures . Constant pounding the leg bones may cause tiny cracks and fractures in the lower leg bones . Solution </li></ul><ul><li>Rest is needed to repair these cracks . Without it, cracks grow to become fractures, causing a lot of pain and a long rehabilitation . You can also temporarily try running in the pool or swimming to keep being active and strengthening the ankle muscles - under reduced load and stress . But, without adequate recover, these cracks continue to grow and become a fracture . The result is acute pain and a long recovery . </li></ul>
