There are many causes of medial tibial stress syndrome

Medial tibial stress syndrome, also known as ‘shin splints’, is a common condition that occurs when the muscles and fascia covering the tibial area become overworked and inflamed. Causes of this condition can range from poor running technique and training habits to a lack of ankle strength or flexibility. To offload the irritable structures in the muscles and tendons, chiropractors will typically suggest a combination of physiotherapy, massage therapy, and rest.

Medial tibial stress syndrome, sometimes referred to as shin splints, is a common injury that affects athletes of all ages. Although it isn’t serious, the condition can create discomfort and make participating in physical activities difficult. In many cases, the pain associated with medial tibial stress syndrome arises gradually due to repeated lower-leg movements such as running or jumping.

Medial tibial stress syndrome, often referred to as ‘shin splints’, is a common injury among athletes and other active individuals. Typically, it involves pain and inflammation along the inner edge of the tibia, which can spread to the entire lower leg. It is usually caused by overtraining or physical activities that involve repetitive impact on hard surfaces. Some of the common symptoms include tenderness or soreness in the area, swelling along the shinbone, and pain that intensifies with activity or running. Individuals suffering from medial tibial stress syndrome experience difficulty in walking or running for long distances at a normal pace.

Treatment of medial tibial stress syndrome usually focuses on reducing inflammation and controlling pain. Treatment options to consider include chiropractic care, physiotherapy, and massage therapy. A chiropractor may be able to provide adjustments which can help with mobilization and reduce discomfort. Physiotherapy can assist with the rehabilitation process and may include activities such as stretches and strength training which can prevent recurrence of MTSS symptoms. Massage therapy has also been seen to be beneficial in breaking up tissue adhesions which can lead to pain relief from MTSS.

I cannot recommend Dr. Shannon Webster and Dr. Michael Torreiter enough. Both are super friendly and understanding and it has been an absolute pleasure to have met them and been treated by them.

I have been receiving treatment from Dr. Webster for a few months and I've been feeling much better. I had sever knee, shoulder and back pain. I couldn't squat or do push ups without my joints screaming at me. But now I'm not able to only do all those but also feel stronger. The most important piece is that she listened and took my history of many injuries into consideration. And as a dancer, I couldn't have asked for a better chiropractor who not only helped me feel better but also understood my needs.

I also brought my grandmother to Dr. Torreiter for her back pain for acupuncture. He was extremely kind, understanding, compassionate and everything that I could ask for. He made her feel comfortable and explained every step during each treatment. He made sure that she was well taken care of and also made other important referrals that lead to her recovery.

So far I have referred my whole family to these two wonderful individuals and everyone's experience has been equally great. Thanks to them we all are doing much better!
