Returning To Running After Shin Splints

Runners in the Lakewood, CO community have a great resource available in the form of the Belmar Running Club. The group meets up every Thursday at 6:00 PM—at either 100% Chiropractic or Runners Roost Lakewood—before heading out and following either a 3, 5, or 7-mile route. Afterwards, the group goes to Rocko’s Cantina. If you are interested, you can find more information on their Facebook page.

Now, you might enjoy running either with a group like the Belmar Running Club or by yourself, but you won’t enjoy it if you have sharp pain in your shins. After you’ve been treated, you need to know how to return to running after shin splints.

Your health and wellbeing is our primary concern, so we are here to help! Here are some tips to make your return to running easier and safer after your sore shins heal:

Generally, shin splints simply need some time for the tissues to heal. If you are experiencing chronic issues, or have a case that will not go away, you may need some professional care. Our doctors at Rocky Mountain Foot & Ankle Center can determine what is happening and how to fix it.

Remember, running before shin splints have healed completely could lead to greater damage, so come see us at one of our four Colorado offices – Wheat Ridge, Golden, Evergreen, or Granby—for advice and care. Call us at (303) 423-2520 for further information, including business hours at each location.
