SHIN SPLINTS TREATMENT
Do your shins throb and ache after your daily run or just sprinting to catch the bus?
It could be shin splints. You might hear a doctor call it medial tibial stress syndrome. The cause is stress on your shinbone and the connective tissues that attach muscles to your bones. They get inflamed and painful.
This common problem can result from:
Flat feet -- when the impact of a step makes your foot's arch collapse (your doctor will call this overpronation)
Shoes that don’t fit well or provide good support
Working out without warmup or cooldown stretches
Weak ankles, hips, or core muscles
DIAGNOSIS AND TREATMENT
Shin splints are usually diagnosed based on your medical history and a physical exam.
Schedule an appointment with Dr. J. Leonard Knudson - a Culver City Foot Doctor for a shin splint consultation. Dr. J. Leonard Knudson is a Foot and Ankle Surgeon located in Culver City and near West Los Angeles that is able to provide proper shin splint treatment.
WHAT CLIENTS SAY ABOUT FOOT CARE WLA
THE BEST IN THE
LOS ANGELES AREA
"I had some surgery for a minor skin cancer on my ankle which became infected and created a wound that would not heal. After a month of trying, the surgeon sent me to Dr. J. Knudson. He has many years of experience with stubborn cases. Gradually he used various forms of treatment until I was finally cured. How fortunate I was to have found him. I am now back to my previous activity and health. They deserve more than 5 stars."
THE BEST DOCTOR IN
"I visited Associated Foot Care, Dr. Leonard Knudson for consultation on my right foot that needed surgery and Dr Knudson is actually the second Dr. I am visiting regarding my foot problem since the first foot Dr. I went to was like the waiting game type. Dr. Knudson x-rayed my foot right away and next thing you know, I had my schedule for my foot surgery! Everything went smooth, didn't feel pain at all. I fully recommend him."
KNOWLEDGEABLE AND TRUSTWORTHY FOOT DOCTOR
"My best friend recommended I see Dr. Knudson so I made an appointment and saw him. He is very knowledgeable and took the time to explain what was going on with my feet and how my bone structure was affected by the shoes I was wearing. He took x-rays to determine the condition of my feet before making any suggestions for treatment. I became his client since my consultation and will be seeing him twice a week! I will definitely be recommending him to my friends and family!"
