Shin pain is most often caused by heel cords that are too tight as a result of excess pronation or supination, and/or an active lifestyle. Symptoms of shin pain include shin splits, irritation and swelling of the muscles, knots that feel bumpy along the shin bone, and pain while walking. This pain increases with high impact movement, jumping and running – especially uphill. Shin pain is common in athletes who perform high impact activities.
Flat feet or excessive pronation may increase your risk for shin pain. When there is weakness in the stabilizing muscles of your feet, you do not have proper arch support to evenly distribute the force of each step. Destructive shockwaves are absorbed by your shins.
High impact activities can result in excess stretching of the muscles and tendons along your shins. They can also result in stress fractures – tiny breaks in the lower leg bones.
The foot moves in three planes of motion – up and down, side to side, and rotationally. So, our insoles are designed with a three point system. Our proven TRI-Planar technology aligns your body with every step you take. We don’t try to correct the problem of misalignment by placing an artificial arch under your foot. With years of research on TRI-Planar technology, we have developed a design that gently aligns the ankle and tibia (shin) into a more neutral state. This movement toward better alignment of the ankle and the tibia provides the key to reducing pain, fatigue, over pronation and over supination.
Our TRI-Planar insoles align your feet against over pronation, over supination, pain and fatigue.
Stretching several times daily will help alleviate pain.
Massage has been shown to reduce pain, blood pressure, and stress.
Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation can help reduce pain and inflammation.
