Shin and Calf Pain

 

Medial Tibial Stress Syndrome

 

Pain that usually affects the inside of the lower third of the Tibia (shin bone) and is most commonly caused by overuse and inflammation of Tibialis posterior muscle, which stresses  the bone to which it is attached. This is very common amongst runners but can also be seen in anyone who participates in walking or running related sports.

 

Anterior Shin pain

 

Pain in the outer side of the shin bone which affects the Tibialis anterior muscle.  Most commonly caused by overuse and inflammation of Tibialis posterior muscle, which stresses  the bone to which it is attached. This is very common amongst runners but can also be seen in anyone who participates in walking or running related sports.

 

Tibialis Posterior Tendon Dysfunction

 

The Tibialis posterior  tendon is one of the major supporting structures of the foot and ankle, helping the foot to function whilst walking. The tendon can be dysfunctional  caused by changes in the foot biomechanics and posture, overloading of the tendon in propulsive sports, impairing its ability to support the arch of the foot, resulting in pain and weakness on the inside of the ankle and main arch of the foot.

 

Calf Pain

 

The calf complex is made up of two muscle groups, your Gastrocnemius and Soleus. Calf pain is commonly associated with many sports including any running, jumping or explosive sports. Certain foot types can be responsible for overusing the muscles in the calf area and poor  footwear can also have a significant influence over the stresses applied.
