Also referred to as Shin Splints this condition results in pain being felt along the inside edge of the shin bone or tibia. It’s a problem that is commonly related to exercise and typically develops after a period of physical activity. It’s often associated with running but can also occur after a bout of vigorous exercise or in a person just starting out on a fitness program. Tibia edge syndrome describes an inflammation of the tendons, muscles and bone tissue surrounding the tibia, and pain is usually felt along the inner edge of the border of the tibia where muscles are joined to bones. In general this condition is caused by repetitive activity and consequent overuse of muscles and bone tissue in the legs, but other factors such as flat feet, abnormally rigid arches, or exercising with improper footwear can also be contributors.
Extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) is an alternative non-surgical approach to pain relief that we regularly use to cure common foot problems such as heel pain, Achilles tendinitis and plantar fasciitis. It’s rapidly growing in popularity with over 90 percent of patients experiencing a reduction in their pain. Because it’s a non-invasive treatment which is performed outside of the body, it promotes a faster healing time and offers fewer possible side effects. Read on to find out more about the conditions we can treat with ESWT.
