Medial tibial stress syndrome is a very common condition in runners, which is generally responsive to treatments offered at The London Podiatry Centre. The key is to undertake biomechanical analysis followed by a gait evaluation in order to understand the cause for the condition. This allows for effective treatment.

Footwear, orthoses, soft tissue work, manipulation and specific stretching and exercise programmes are just some of the tools which are used at The London Podiatry Centre to manage medial tibial stress syndrome. If the aforementioned treatment modalities are unresponsive then further in-depth scanning is undertaken, which can lead to techniques such as, prolotherapy (specialist injections) and surgery, as a last resort.
