Are you experiencing sharp stabbing pain with every stride in Gallup, NM? I’ve felt your pain! When I was in college, I experienced painful shin splints before I found a permanent solution.
Shin splints can keep any runner or athlete on the sidelines. This common condition occurs when the muscle attached to the shinbone experiences stress and develops tiny tears. Podiatrists in the Gallup, New Mexico area suggest that you treat symptoms with rest, ice and anti-inflammatory pain medicine, because this injury is often caused by overuse,. However, when the pain returns you’re forced to stop doing what you love.
While ice and rest may provide temporary relief, custom orthotics by podiatrist, Dr. Hugentobler of Gallup, New Mexico (NM) can be a permanent solution for your shins. For me, custom orthotics were the most effective option for treating and preventing my painful shin splints. When I felt the instant relief, I knew I wanted to help others by becoming a podiatrist in Gallup, New Mexico.
Shoes and custom insoles (orthotics) are specially molded for your feet to correct issues causing micro-tears in the muscle. Rather that quitting your sport or hobby, the perfect orthotics allow you to do what you love without being in pain.
