Shin splints are common, but that doesn’t mean they’re normal! They’re actually the first warning sign of a hip problem, so don’t ignore them.

Did you know that stability sneakers create shin splints? You could be a full-foot-function runner with good form, but if you’re in a stability sneaker that doesn’t allow for foot mobility, you could begin to develop hip dysfunction…feeling it in your – you guessed it -- shins. The good news is that shin splints fall into the ache/pain category, which means they can be corrected quickly.

Jessica gets into the technical weeds in today’s episode, explaining exactly what shin splints are, how they develop, how the foot and hip are involved. Come geek out and learn with us. Jessica’s got supporting visuals too!

Then we have a case study. You’ll love hearing Nancy’s story – about the cute barista who noticed she was losing weight and encouraged her to try running, about her weight loss journey, and about why she continues to run. When Nancy developed debilitating shin splints and struggled to find a lasting solution, she found #RPF. As is typical, Jessica kept Nancy “in sport” while she was in "correction." #RPF uses the sport as part of the correction program.

Long story short – Nany recovered quickly. When she came to Jessica, she wasn’t sure she could run a marathon. She has run six-four within one year!
