Tibial stress syndrome (TSS), also known as shin splints, is an overuse injury of the lower leg. It is caused by pain along the inner border of the tibia (shinbone), where muscles attach to the bone. TSS is most common in runners and other athletes who participate in high-impact activities such as basketball, soccer and tennis.

This stress can be caused by a variety of factors, including:

1. Increasing the intensity or duration of exercise too quickly.
2. Running on hard surfaces.
3. Wearing improper footwear.
4. Having flat feet or high arches.
5. Muscle weakness or imbalance.

Symptoms of Tibial Stress Syndrome

1. Tenderness along the inner border of the shin bone.
2. Swelling of the shin.
3. Difficulty bearing weight on the affected leg.
4. A popping or snapping sensation in the shin.
5. Pain that persists even at rest.

If you experience any of these symptoms, it is important to see a doctor who provides proper medication that will help you alleviate the pain from your shin.

There are a number of preventive measures that can be taken to reduce the risk of developing TSS such as:

1. Start slowly and increase your activity level gradually.
2. Proper footwear is essential for preventing TSS.
3. Stretch your calf muscles regularly.
4. If you experience pain in your shins, stop running or exercising and get a rest.
5. Avoid running on hard surfaces.

In some cases, physical therapy may be necessary to help you strengthen your muscles and improve your range of motion.

Advance Prolotherapy Treatment for Tibial Stress Syndrome

Advance prolotherapy treatment is a minimally invasive procedure that can be used to treat TSS. It is a regenerative injection therapy that uses a solution of dextrose and local anaesthetic to stimulate the growth of new tissue in the injured area.
It helps in stimulating the growth of new tissue in the injured area which helps in the production of growth factors, strengthens and repair the ligaments and tendons.

Here are some of the benefits of advance prolotherapy

1. It is a minimally invasive procedure with a low risk of complications.
2. It can be performed in an outpatient setting.
3. It is effective in reducing pain and improving function.
4. It can help patients to return to their desired activities more quickly.

Shockwave and EMTT therapy for Tibial Stress Syndrome

Shockwave therapy and electromagnetic transduction therapy (EMTT) are two non-invasive treatments that can be used to treat TSS. Both treatments work by sending high-energy sound waves into the affected area to stimulate healing and reduce pain. Shockwave therapy uses high-energy sound waves to create micro-traumas in the affected tissue. This stimulates the body’s natural healing response, which leads to increased blood flow and cell regeneration. It can also help to break down scar tissue and promote new tissue growth.
The number of shockwave or EMTT treatments needed will vary depending on the severity of the TSS. Most patients require 3-4 treatments sessions.

Benefits of Shockwave and EMTT therapy

Shockwave and EMTT therapy offer a number of benefits,

1. They are non-invasive and do not require surgery or injections.
2. They are relatively painless.
3. Effective in reducing pain and inflammation.
4. They can help to accelerate healing.
5. Safe and well-tolerated by most patients.
