It’s Halloween! Tonight in the Sugar Land Towne Square is the Haute Halloween Live Music event with a costume contest. If you have shin splints, the only thing on your mind is probably “What can I do to start helping my shin splint pain?” This frustrating condition can happen to anyone, but don’t let it ruin your Halloween fun.

Runner Tying Shoes

This is a problem that physically active people often face. Whether you do light exercising or are an avid runner you could develop this painful condition. You will usually notice that there is pain running along the inside of your shin that is often worse after physical activity. It usually occurs in people who are just starting a new workout regimen or who have recently increased the intensity of their exercise program. Another risk factor is wearing worn out shoes that don’t offer enough support. Thankfully, in most cases this shin pain can be easily treated at home with a few simple changes.

You will first want to make sure that you aren’t actually suffering from a more serious condition, such as tendinitis or a stress fracture. If it truly is this condition, the first thing you need to do is rest your feet and discontinue the activity causing the pain. While you are healing, you can engage in lower impact exercise such as cycling, swimming, or even the elliptical. Applying ice to your shins can help with pain and prevent swelling from occurring. There are stretches you can do to strengthen your leg muscles and ease any pain you may have. If shin splints are a recurring problem for you, it may be wise to invest in some orthotics that can give you extra support. Your local Sugar Land foot doctor can also prescribe medication for the pain.

For more information on treating shin splints, call Dr. Marco Vargas at (888) 784-5335 to schedule an appointment at Vargas Foot & Ankle Specialists in Sugar Land, TX.
