Saadhve Rajaraman and Riddhi ShroffAbstract:
Shin Splints is the term that is used to describe lower leg pain that occurs below the knee, on the front of the leg; either the outside part of the leg (anterior shin splints) or the inside of the leg (medial shin splints). Shin splints is an overuse injury.
Methodology: An interventional study was done to study the effects of kineseotaping on shin splints in marathon runners coupled with a plantar-flexion and dorsiflexion exercise program. Study design: Prospective study. Sample size: 30 marathon runners.
Results: A statistically significant difference was found in: the IOWA Pain thermometer (IPT) test pre and post intervention (p value: 0.0065), in the shin pain experienced by the runner pre and post the intervention (p value: 0.0007) and also in the changes in running routine pre and post the intervention study (p value: 0.0001).
