Title : Treatment of medial tibial stress syndrome (shin splints): What is the evidence-based medical treatment?


To understand the treatment, you first must identify the cause of MTSS in that individual. Iontophoresis, phonophoresis, ice massage, ultrasound therapy, and extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) could be effective in treating MTSS when compared with control. Low-energy laser treatment, stretching and strengthening exercises, sports compression stockings, lower leg braces and pulsed electromagnetic fields have NOT been proven to be effective in treating MTSS.


Dr. Spector studied Economics at McGill University, Montreal, Canada and graduated in 1986. He went to the New York College of Podiatric Medicine and graduated in 1992. He completed a surgical residency at the Georgia Podiatric Surgical Residency in Atlanta, GA.
