Massage For Shin Splints

Do You Have Shin Splints?
Do you suffer from shin splints? You’re likely a runner or hiker but this painful symptom can affect many different types of athletes.

Massage Therapy Can Help!
At Athletic Edge, we understand that your shin splints can be extremely painful and mentally challenging…and we’re here to help! Our massage therapists are skilled in sports massage, injury rehab and pain relief.



Causes of Shin Splints
Shin splints are usually caused from pain in the Tibialis Anterior or Tibialis Posterior muscles. Poor ankle or foot support can be a major cause of this pain pattern. So can improper alignment of the hip, knee or ankle. A gait analysis can be helpful as well.

Why Choose Athletic Edge?
We can help you! Since posture is often a contributing factor, we’ll look at the biomechanics of your foot/ankle and hips/pelvis to determine the cause of this painful symptom. We can help you determine whether to use ice or heat and will provide stretches and recommendations to help get you back on your feet. Our trained therapists will provide the right treatment for you, whether it’s myofascial release, trigger point therapy, a series of muscle energy techniques, or active stretching and release.

Our Experience
In addition to working with many local athletes and professional sports teams, the staff at Athletic Edge works in conjunction with doctors, chiropractors, physical therapists, acupuncturists and other health care professionals to provide our clients with the highest level of care possible. We have treated everything from pulled muscles, whiplash and joint pain to scoliosis, carpal tunnel syndrome and severe nerve pain.
