Going 'barefoot' to try and combat shin splints - any advice appreciated!

Posted: 21/01/2013 at 09:30

Thank you for all the advice. Ksizzlepod/RicF - I was never offered any other treatment on the NHS (such as xrays) and used up all of my physio allowance with them. If I am honest, I really can't afford private investigations . If I go back 8 months I was not running regularly, it was literally the last time I ran. I have not run regularly for 2 years or so. The pain I currently get is not continuous, it is more like a ache/twinge every now and again, but the muscles down the inside of my legs and along the front of my shin bone can be sore if massaged. My thought is that working my muscles differently may strengthen/correct other muscles and help.

Debra - Thank you for the barefoot advice. I had planned on just wearing them around the house and then walking in them to start with. And no, I don't fancy standing in dog poo either! - hence the shoes, but total barefoot was one of the things my physio did suggest last year. I didn't buy the shoes then as they were full price, but I just saw then half price so that's why I bought them now!

Stutyr - Yes, thank you, I have had a good look online which was why I decided to try it. I will have a look at the app thanks!

Haha, I am a woman, and the picture was taken 3 years ago when I first started getting them as I found it helped. I have not worn it for a while. I have spoken to the vibram sports team and a physio when at an event they were at and there has also been positive feedback online about Vibrams helping shin splints.

I have been suffering shin splints for the last 3 years, have exceeded my NHS Physio allowance and have not been running for 8 months. (Long story if I explain all that I have tried!)

So New Year, new attempt (again). This time I have bought a pair of Vibram Five Fingers Treksport. I still get twinges in my shins when I am walking or driving so I want to be careful.

Has anyone had any experiance with Vibrams/Shin Splints or any advice?

Thank you!

Fibrous scar tissue

After a painful leg injury I have managed to get physio on the nhs, and yes she does very painful massage to break down and realign my scarred muscle fibres and lots of boring exersises - but it seems to work. I was initially told by the doc that I was unlikley to be accepted on the NHS, but I pushed her to apply for me anyway and I am glad I got accepted as my phyiso was surprised by how bad I was! 2 months into physio now, hopefully I can start running again in 2 weeks time!

 Good luck!
