Re: Posting here seems to be a waste

You pointed out that this is a waste of your time. I sometimes ask myself why I do this since you are correct, I do suggest that the individual get another opinion. Sometimes that is what people need- another viewpoint.

Treating people is not easy since there are many other factors involved in coming to a diagnosis. Most people who post do not take it into account. Almost always it is best to examine the patient and review all pertinent facts.

Try solving a crime without any information.

And by the way, I do not do this to promote my practice. Actually I have had 2 patients come in to my practice stating they saw this forum. If you count the thousands of posts I have responded to, that's not a very good return on my time.
I answer the questions I feel comfortable responding to when I have time. I receive no money or other compensation for doing this. People post from all over the world. If I have helped one person, then I am gratified.

I am sorry you feel that way.

The Shin Splint Compression Wrap applies gentle pressure on soft tissue next to the tibia (shin bone), helping prevent additional tearing of the soft tissue away from the tibia. Compression not only reduces additional damage, it alleviates pain and enhances the healing process.
