Shin Pain and Nutrition – When most people have pain in their calf, they usually seek orthotics, PT, or even chiropractic care.   As long as your problem is physical in nature, all of these are wonderful interventions.  Common physical causes included constant stress from work, or exercises, injuries or imbalances from stress or surgery.  In fact, the most common physical shin injury is called “shin splints”.  But what if your pain keeps coming back?  This may be a sign your calf pain may come from nutritional problems.

In fact, here are some signs that your calf pain may come from nutritional problems…

  • Limited ankle movement, especially when pointing the toes down
  • Deep bone or join pain
  • Painful or weak teeth
  • Swollen feet or ankles
  • Recent trauma, accident or injury
  • Frequent infections

How to Tell

Often times this can be a sign that your body has difficulty processing and using proteins for tissue repair.    If you are eating enough of these essential nutrients, it may be your body has trouble digesting, absorbing or using these precious vitamins and minerals.  It’s important to remember that your body needs enzymes in order to digest, absorb and use protein.  It’s also important to remember that vitamins are only co-enzymes.  In fact, they cannot do their job without the right enzymes in place.

OK, I know what you’re thinking.  How can I tell the difference?  At Redmond Ridge Nutrition, we can perform objective tests based on sound medical principals to find where the actual source of stress exists.  Once we figure that out we can put a plan in place to make sure your body gets the vital nutrition it needs.  In addition, we can help your body properly digest, absorb and use those precious building blocks to health.

If your problem is mechanical in nature the right combination of chiropractic care, orthotics and home exercises may be the key.  We can help with that too.
