Shin Splints - Prevention and shin muscle strengthening

Posted: 27/02/2015 at 10:25

ive just posted this in another thread...so copy and pasted..

ive suffered from chronic shinsplints all my running life...ive spent fortunes with podiatrists who convinced me that their custom made orthotics will sort me out!!

ive never even had an improvement in symptoms...until recently (touch wood) my NHS physio has me exercising my lower legs on a tipping board and an aerobic step, also im trying to change my running style from heel striker to midfoot...ive had lots of false dawns but i do seem better...

Is it a hamstring injury

Posted: 06/02/2015 at 16:22

another for Sciatic nerve......i had this for over a year , saw numerous private physio's who told me it was a hamstring strain. Finally i was diagnosed by an NHS physio.

Core strength training was good. But building up miles on a static exercise bike seemed to cure it...i think its the gentle stretching of the nerve as you cyle

hamstring?

You said run tall ...so im ok to begin running pain allowing?...i know within reason!

Im 6 foot 4 and have to admit my posture isnt the best..so this does make sense... i know there are is no Guarantee but im willing to give anything a try to get me training again...

Six Physio

I wont be going back if im honest..in my experience i present a problem and i get a default answer. Sorry if i sound cynical but i was told at Salford Pdiatry School that i had been misdiagnosed by 2 different podiatrists who sold me insoles at £200 a pair.

 

So what are you telling me to do? Am i ok to ease myself back into running?Thanks for your time.

Six Physio - i dont know whether you telling me to stretch ot not? sorry being a bit thick....but ive had a bot of contradictory advice lately....my physio examined me , told me i had tight hamstrings( which i do)...told me to stretch more then relieved me of £30.

Thanks for your replies

Absurdly after the run on Thursday it was very sore on Friday....but today its probably better than it has been since it started....(though its still there)

Ill look to take Six Physio and Running Chemist's advice.

 

Runners Therapist :- Just before my Hamstring kicked off  - i was visiting Salford Podiatry school ( after being disillusioned by private podaitrists) in a vein attempt to solve my medial shinsplints problem in my left leg. I have a leg length discrepancy ..(left is Shorter). They videoed me running front and back ...My left foot has slight pronation as i land but my right has considerable pronation. I dont know whether my new orthotics are the issue as i have always worn differnt pairs over the last 5 years.

Anyway im sure we have spoken before...are u based in marlow??
