    Has it made a difference? not in the slightest and imo not worth the money.

    Re: Painful Shin from running!

    I injured my foot "running through the pain" a couple of years ago. Spent months in pain as a result. Had fitted running shoes and was pretty fit, saw multiple sports therapists and physios, even to the point of orthotics and consultant surgeon.

    They all told me to stop running.

    Here I am. No more pain but I do miss running a lot.

    Listen to your body and rest up.

    Re: Painful Shin from running!

    Skeletal and/or tendon stress injuries take time because there is no direct blood flow to the tissue. Rest with hot and cold treatment may marginally help.

    You either stop the stress causing cycles (running) or cause increased damage, the choice is yours. You'll pay a bigger price in the future if you're pigheaded.

    Re: Painful Shin from running!

    Rest, rest, and then just when you think you're fine, rest another week. Everyone I know who has got these (myself included) rushed back too soon. You think your body is fine, but it isn't quite there.

    As said a bit above, cycling is much more helpful than you think. I've heard a lot that cycling can really help your running, while the opposite isn't as true.

    Was that at Sweatshop? They tried to sell me a pair but they felt awful.

    Re: Painful Shin from running!

    I had a similar issue just over a year ago that was caused (in part) by a bunion. I was compensating for it when running which caused the shin problems. I ended up seeing a podiatrist who did a biomechanical assessment and built me two sets of orthotics. One pair for my daily shoes and the other for my running shoes. He then referred me to a physio where I had two acupuncture sessions and go on a heat lamp. I've been fine since and usually run between 25-45 miles a week depending on what I'm training for.

    Re: Painful Shin from running!

    thanks again folks, gmc I might ask my physio about acupuncture, I know she does it so im good to try anything if it may help! We used a podiatrist for my daughter and got her othotics, so maybe should give ehr a call too.
    for the minute, I did 20k last night on the bike which was fine, but much prefer running, still a few weeks on the bike will have to do..

    Tony, see your Doctor and ask for an appointment with a podiatrist, I see mine every 12 months and get him to check my feet and he does the orthotic insoles if required. If needed you're entitled to one pair a year. I've worn them for over 10 years for running, playing Golf etc and never had some of the issues mentioned on the thread.
