ylIN SPLINTS ARE RUNNERS' BANE:
BY GAIL RYAN.
QUESTION: Lately I've been getting
hinsplints when I run. I've noticed it
appens more often when I run on the
ndoor track. Sometimes it gets so bad I
ave to stop running for a whole week,
nd then I feel like I lose a lot of ground
n my conditioning program.\ I've only
een running for about two months. Do
ou know what causes this and how I
an get rid of this problem?
ANSWER: Shin splints are'ekprien-
d as pain in the lower portion of-the
eg, and are usually due to an inflam-
ation of the tissues surrounding the
hin bone. However, there are other
ditions which may cause pain in the
wer leg, and these have often been
onfused with shin splints.
Things such as disorders of the
ascular system, which cause swelling
f muscles and reduced blood supply to
e area, and fatigue fractures, which
are actual fractures of the shin bone,
4ve been misdiagnosed as shin splints
some runners and other athletes.
Since the latter are much more serious,
- is important to make an accurate
In general, one indication is that if
the pain subsides shortly after running,
th re is a good chance it is shinsplints
si ce these other conditions usually
result in an increase in pain over time,
even with resting. SHIN SPLINTS oc-
ur more frequently in the early part of
the training period, and, as you have
experienced, more commonly on hard
surfaces such as the indoor track or
concrete sidewalks. Running too much
on the toes or running with too much
fot .and ankle motion can bring on
' If you develop shin splints, it is very
portant to take care of them so that
more serious injury does not occur. Ac-
cording to Thomas Clark, a physician
at University Health Service \who has
an interest in sports medicine, rest is
the most important treatment. This
reduces the strain: placed upon the
tissues and prevents swelling.
Clark feels that if there is only
h Service Hand
moderate pain during or immediately
after running, simply reducing speed
and distance may allow it to resolve.
However, if pain is severe and more
persistent, complete rest from running
is necessary. The amount of rest varies
for each individual. You mentioned that
a week of rest is sufficient for you.
CLARK ALSO suggests applying ice
right after running, and heat after a
period of rest, to' the affected area.
Also, taping the ankle if foot and ankle
motion is painful, and taking aspirin,
may help to improve symptoms and
speed recovery. He emphasizes that if
the pain has not resolved with rest in
three weeks or if pain is very severe, a
physician should be consulted to check
for the other more serious causes of
You expressed concern that this
period of rest that is necessary has
caused you to "lose ground" in your
conditioning program. Many beginning
runners fear that if they interrupt their
conditioning program by even one
week, they will decline to their pre-
However, a good thing to keep in
mind is that it takes just about as long
to fall out of conditioning as it does to
get into conditioning. For you, this
would be two whole months!
IT HAS BECOME obvious that
prevention is the key to eliminating
shin splints. Some suggestions have
" Gradual buildup of speed and
distance to adjust to this new source of
strain. Clark suggests that the runner
learn to "read" the condition of his or
her body each day to help avoid any ex-
cess strain. Excess is, of course,
relative to the person's condition, such
as presence of illness, amount of
fatigue, and amount of running he or
she has become accustomed to.
" Avoid running on hard surfaces.
Grass, or other more resilient surfaces,
are preferable. Although the uneven-
ness of the grassy surface may cause
other problems, such as twisting of the
ankle or foot.
" Always do stretching exercises
both before and after running.
* Wear shoes that fit well. Shoes that
are too tight or too loose will interfere
with the correct placement of the foot.
Also, wear well-cushioned shoes, with
good shock-absorbing qualities.
* Have someone - preferably an ex-
perienced runner or another with ex-
pertise - watch you run to look for any
changes that can be made in your run-
ning style, such as eliminating toe run-
ning. A podiatrist would be able to tell if
you have "imbalanced feet" which
might require an orthotic device - an
angular-shaped leather, plastic, or
foam rubber shoe insert, available only
by prescription, which helps the foot
land flat and eliminates the twisting
that causes leg problems.
" Give yourself time to adjust to new
surfaces, new shoes, environmental
changes, and changes in training
techniques. For instance, if you run a
different route with more hills,
decrease the speed and distance for
" Do not run if you experience pain.
