Treating Your Shin Splints

Austin Fit magazine recently interview Dr. John McDonald to learn more about shin splints (Managing Your Shin Splints). An excerpt of the article is below.

Runners (and other athletes participating in sports that involve running) often suffer from pain along the shinbone anywhere between the ankle and knee, a condition commonly known as shin splints.

While rest, icing, and anti-inflammatories are some of the treatments often recommended, many opt for self-massage of the area to help with the pain they’re feeling.

That’s where a body roller such as the Original Worm comes in—this roller works to provide trigger point release by simultaneously massaging the anterior, medial, and lateral shin while comfortably hugging the tibia.
