I was reading the SP article today on the 5 most common running/walking injuries. I have 3 of the 5.
Since my big toes are fused due to arthritis I have plantar fasciitis, over-pronation of my feet and have to wear orthotics in my running shoes when I go walking. This has worked well however, my doctor wanted me to increase my walking to aide in weight loss so I did increase slowly (I thought) but ended up getting ITB syndrome and shin splints!
I am doing special stretches/massaging for the ITB and hopefully once that is relieved the shin splints will go away. Does anyone have any personal suggestions as to how to manage these conditions. thanks

Every morning you wake up is another chance to make it right!

If you change nothing, nothing will change.
