Shin Splints Physiotherapy Singapore
Shin splints are relatively common, and commonly misleadingly termed as shin pain that is experienced during running.
It can be misleading and most sports medicine professionals try to not use the term because "shin pain" and "shin splints" can be caused by different conditions.
Traction Periostitis (MTTP) is the accurate medical term used to describe Shin
Splints, and it refers to an inflammatory condition of the front part of the shin
bone called the tibia.
Shin Splints Symptoms
Patients suffering from MTTP will experience discomfort and pain on the inner border of the
shin (medial Tibial border) during and after exercise. It is
important to be able to tell MTTP from other causes of shin pain (‘Shin
Splints’) such as Compartment Syndrome or Tibial Stress Fracture.
clinically and usually presents with pain (dull ache) and palpable tenderness along
the inside of the lower leg. In the beginning, patients may experience pain/ache
early in running, and the pain decreases with continued activity. However, as the
condition progresses pain may be present throughout the activity.
Shin Splints Physiotherapy Treatment
The pain experience with MTTP is mainly caused by excessive pressure on the
lower leg muscles...for example running a lot on hard surfaces or increasing your
training load/intensity too quickly is a common issue (too hard too fast)
For the immediate
treatment of symptoms Cold therapy is a very effective form of pain
relief, and more importantly, most patients respond well to non-operative treatment. This includes adequate rest, strengthening and stretching exercises, followed by a
gradual return to running after symptoms subside.
In order to help
prevent this condition from coming back, a bio-mechanical analysis (an
analysis of posture at rest and during walking and running) with our
specialist physios should be undertaken to identify and pick up any factors that may be
making a person susceptible/aggravating MTTP, so that they can be corrected
before a return to activity.

Muscle imbalance and leg length inequality
are common causes of mal-alignment that can be picked up during the physiotherapy assessment. A common cause of Medial Tibial Stress
Syndrome is Flat Feet. These would be identified during bio-mechanical assessment and analysis.
our foot pronates (this means to walk or run with most of the weight on the inside edge of the feet). at an increased speed, what happens is that it puts unnecessary and additional pressure on the
muscles along the front and side of the leg. Over time, this leads to overuse
syndrome, stress fractures and ischaemic pain associated with increased
Arch supporting orthotics insoles is very effective in remedying this problem but must be clinically and customized instead of being off-the-shelf/retail because there are many different types and some can make you worse
rather than better.
All cases of shin pains should be properly
assessed by a Specialist Physiotherapist.
