Shin Splints Defined

Shin Splints are an “over-use” inflammatory condition that causes a painful inflammation of the periosteum (the dense outer layer of connective tissue lining the bones – which occurs either along the inside or outside of the shin bone). Shin splints are usually caused by excessive pronation (low foot arch) or beginning an exercise program too vigorously or intensely.

Please contact our office in Brampton at 905-796-6585 for comprehensive assessment and treatment of your shin splints.
