Subject: R Thank you for your instruction book From: Carol cad****@******** (Add as Preferred Sender) ? Date: Tue, Sep 25, 2007 12:23 pm To: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for writing the instruction book on shinsplints, it greatly helped my son. I did the regiment on Stephen and it got him through the pain and helped him to continue through the physical training in the Police Academy.
Now when he has the beginning of pain in his shins or calves (since the regiment, he does not have much pain now, even during physical training) we do the regiment and he does not suffer throughout the next day.
Thank you again.

Just though I would let you know how the Great Wales 10km Run went on Sunday. It was my first and the shin splint appears not to have affected my race. I clocked 46.53 which I was pleased with! I massaged as you recommended and it is clearing nicely. I have also bought shoes since then that will correct my over pronating foot. The specialist in the shop suggested that may well have exacerbated the problem.
The term Shin Splints covers a variety of pain that occurs in the distal two-thirds of the tibia and results from repetitive micro-trauma of the tibialis anterior and/or surrounding soft tissue. Small tears can also result in the periosteum - the sheath that covers the outer tibia.
Muscles in the anterior compartment swell from sudden overuse with the resulting edema and inflammation reducing blood flow to the muscle. This web site looks at ways to reduce the damage and then seek to treat the surrounding soft tissue problems in the anterior compartment in runners.
We hope you find the information on this site helpful in managing your shin splints and training smartly. Information is made available on this site and via email opt in. The PDF version of the shin splint cure that contains the full treatment plan is also available to order and is now in the 3rd edition.
Step 2: Deal with any inflammation or swelling that may be present
Step 3: Apply advanced muscle techniques and M.E.T's to treat and lengthen the soft tissue. Actual muscle imbalance is so often overlooked in this condition. The purpose of this site is to get you doing this step - self treatment of the lower leg from a remedial massage perspective.
Step 4: Re-strengthen and re-build the area for balance. Be sure the bio-mechanics are sound
Step 5: More intelligent training and monitoring are required as you build back up to peak conditioning.
