Marina asked The Guru for the following Physiotherapy Advice:
hello Guru, after a couple of long runs followed by a few short ones the week before last, on Saturday I went for a ten miles and spent the eveing with pain on my lower legs( both) .It felt like stiff shins, but on Sunday I was ok, and excited by the sunny weather off I went again, for 10 km. When I stopped I could barely stand on my right foot.
I have been icing the area and taking iboprufen, as well as using a compressor band at night. On Sunday the area was slightly swallen, now it looks ok, but the pain seems more severe, it hurts whenever I rotate the foot in any direction. It even hurt throught the night, last night. The most painful spot to the touch is still on my lower leg,
I am considering booking an appointment to have it checked, I would like to solve this asap as I am off on holiday next week and I was planning jogging in Italy!Any advise would be graetly appreciated!

How much mileage have you done over what timeframe?
Have you had any foot or ankle or hip problems before? New or old shoes? Hills of flat….
On the rather ugly face of it this sounds like a stress reaction on the bone surface – something that’ll need initial rest and then finding out why (hence the above questions).
I’m sure stretching your calfs would help but is no means a cure. If it hurts when you impact or load it up then I’d rest it until it feels better…Italy or not.
