Do your lower legs hurt on either side of the shin bone that runs down the front of your leg? Have you been training or working extra hard, standing on your feet on hard surfaces? If so, you might be dealing with shin splints. The shin splint acupuncture treatment is safe, effective, and provides long-lasting relief.
What Are Shin Splints?
Shin splints, technically medial tibial hematomas, are pains that run along the inside edge of the shin bones. This pain is most commonly the result of inflamed tissue between the ankle and halfway up the lower leg. Shin splints generate an intense pain that can be dull or sharp, most often triggered by high-impact activities. Athletes (runners, football, and soccer players), dancers, military, firefighters, and police are susceptible to shin splints.
Shin Splint Acupuncture Treatment
The shin splint acupuncture treatment works by increasing Qi and blood circulation. The best way to resolve inflammation of the tendons, ligaments, and muscles is to direct your body’s healing attention to the area and flood it with Qi and blood. We all know about blood and its importance in nourishing the body. However, Qi is just as vital – it is the source of blood generation and circulation.
Recent Shin Splint Case
A 25-year-old woman came to our clinic complaining of shin splints. She was training for a 10k race and had been running more miles over the past few months. Then, about three weeks back, she started feeling pain in the shins of her lower legs which prevented her from training. She was concerned that the pain would force her to drop out of the race.
We applied local needles along her shins at specific acupuncture points. In addition, we added points to reduce inflammation and increase system-wide Qi and blood circulation. She found the treatment restful and relaxing. Afterward, she reported feeling 20 percent less pain in her lower legs. Three treatments later, her pain was 80 percent resolved, and she restarted training.
We treated her six times, at which point the shin splints were no longer bothering her. After that, she raced without a hitch and got a personal record. Since then, she has continued running without a return of leg pain.

What our Clients are Saying
I’m a semi-professional weight lifter. I never had a problem until my hip went out doing squats. The pain was tremendous, like a sharp nerve pain down the back of my leg into the calf. It had sidelined me for two months while I tried unsuccessfully to work out the pain. Then a buddy suggested acupuncture. He had a similar hip pain and got relief at Raleigh Acupuncture. I went there and got treated. They told me to stop stretching until the injury was healed. I followed their instructions and got half a dozen treatments. The pain started easing after the first few treatments. I continued for another 6 treatments and was totally cured. I was able to get back to lifting with no residual effects of the injury. I’ve recommended this practice to a number of friends since that time and they all have had good experiences.
I have neuropathy that is a burning, tingling pain down my legs and into my feet. The doctor said there was nothing I could do besides pain medicine, since I am diabetic. The meds didn’t help much and made me feel groggy all the time. I tried acupuncture, after seeing a segment on Dr. Oz. I found Raleigh Acupuncture online and liked their website. They had alot of useful information. The treatments were interesting. They used electric acupuncture on my legs and feet that felt like a tingling massage. They said it would take a few treatments to start kicking in, and they were right. The burning pain slowly started to recede, and the tingling went away. I was truly amazed to feel such a difference in my legs and feet. I know so many people with neuropathy, and they are afraid to try acupuncture. I think they are crazy not to try it. What a difference not to be in constant pain anymore. I don’t need medication for my legs.
My doctor told me I had sciatica, but the only place I felt pain was on the side of my calf. It was terrible nerve pain that screamed all day and all night. I couldn’t exercise and it affected my sleep. I had to take pain killers every night just to fall asleep. I tried massage and physical therapy, but it didn’t help. So I tried acupuncture. They agreed with my doctor that it was sciatica. They treated my hip as well as my leg. And sure enough, the pain started easing after just one treatment. After 5 treatments it was gone. I don’t understand how treating the hip helped my leg pain, but it did. Thank you Raleigh Acupuncture!
