Pain along the front portion of the lower leg.
This is not a medical diagnose it is just a description of symptoms of pain and burning caused by medial stress syndrome, anterior and posterior compartment syndrome and stress fractures. It is usually related to daily overuse from standing or walking, injury caused by running on hard surfaces and/or on tip of toes and/or pronation.
Inflammation of the periostium (sheath surrounding the bone) of the tibia. This is the most common cause of shin splints. Traction forces occur from the muscles of the lower leg creating stress on the tibia.
Anterior Tibialis Tendon and Muscle
The tendon is attached to the bottom of the foot inserted at the medial long arch (the inner arch) and joins the anterior tibialis muscle that runs along the front of the leg up to the outer portion of the knee. Daily activities create muscle fatigue, which create strain, possible injury, burning and/or pain. Pronation increases the stress, which
may create severe discomfort and inflammation.
Posterior Tibialis Tendon and Muscle
The tendon is attached to the bottom of foot at the medial long arch and joins the posterior tibialis muscle that runs along the back of the leg up to the knee. Daily activities create muscle fatigue, which create strain, injury, burning and/or pain. Pronation increases the syndrome.
Common injury associated with sports involving running, jumping and repetitive stress. Localized bone pain, which increases with weight bearing.
Accommodating orthotic and properly fitted footwear improve mechanical function of the foot, decreases stress and proper alignment.
Custom made insole fabricated to contour and support the arch of the foot. The orthotic allows the weight of the body to be distributed evenly along the foot, which decreases any point pressures. By maintaining proper foot positioning with the help of orthotics and properly fitted footwear, the mechanical stress on tendons and muscles are being relieved and decreases pain and possible injury.
