arch pain

Posted by Gabriela Yariv on 10/06/02 at 21:34 (096990)

I love to run but suffer from shinsplints. I now run on the deep sand which is easier on my shins, but recently have developed severe arch pain. I have a pair of specially made orthotics. Perhaps the combination of wearing very high heels and my excessive running, plus my tight calf muscles have contributed to this.

What do you think? What do I do??? Can I never wear fashionable shoes again? How about flat shoes? Those hurt too.

Unfortunately, we would need to know a lot more about your situation to be able to answer your questions. Did you doctor term your shin splints anterior or posterior shin splints?
