TYPES OF SHIN PAIN
Shin pain referred to as shin splints is a common term for pain occurring in the front and/or inside section of the shin bone (tibia). Anterior (front) shin splints are often experienced by new runners or walkers when pain occurs in the muscles at the front of the shin during exercise. Posterior shin splints (inside shin pain) is a more chronic condition occurring along the inside edge of the shin bone (tibia) and is generally seen with more active sports. Both conditions are related to excess stretching (traction) of muscles and tendons along the shin (tibia and fibia) bones.
HOW ORTHAHEEL® TECHNOLOGY CAN HELP REDUCE SHIN PAIN
Because Orthaheel® Technology naturally aligns the feet to function the way they were intended, the podiatrist-designed support reduces over-pronation and can help reduce excess stretching (traction) of the front and back leg muscles (commonly called Anterior Tibalis and Posterior Tibalis muscles) by utilizing the patented “angular restraining mechanism” in the heel section, thereby relieving this common pain.
