Custom Arch Supports and Shin Splints

Custom Arch Supports and Shin Splints

The term “shin splints” usually refers to pain along the inside-front part of the lower leg. This pain is also referred to medial tibial stress syndrome (MTSS).

MTSS is most often experienced by people that begin jogging. MTSS is usually caused by an imbalance between the calf muscles on the back of the lower leg (posterior muscles) and the anterior muscles or muscles on the front part of the lower leg.

The more powerful posterior muscles overwork the less powerful anterior muscles as the anterior muscles try to decelerate the body at heel strike and when the anterior muscles lift the toe off the ground at toe-off. The over-worked anterior muscles cause excess stress where the muscle attaches to the bone. This causes inflammation and pain along the inside-front part of the lower leg where the anterior muscles attach to the bone.

Treatment for shin splints includes anti-inflammatory medications, physical therapy and custom arch supports (orthotics)  for foot balance, to control motion and cushion the foot.
