Shin Pain

Shin pain

Bursting or dull throbbing along the front of the shin that is aggravated by walking or running.

This is caused by excessive rolling in of the feet (pronation). The muscles of the shin and the lower limb attempt to correct this, quickly becoming overworked, leading to a bursting pain in the muscle bellies and long standing tenderness in the attachment sites of the muscles of the shin.

Sole Control limit the amount of pronation, helping to rest the muscles of the shin, keeping their workload within normal limits.
