Experiencing shin pain?


Physiotherapists at the Mary MacKillop Institute for Health Research are conducting a clinical trial to investigate the use of ankle taping and hip and foot exercises for the management of shin pain. The clinical trial will compare the use of traditional rigid sports taping with the more recent elastic taping techniques. The research team will also evaluate exercises to strengthen the hip and foot muscles. Participants will receive 6 weeks of free physiotherapy treatment.

To be eligible to participate you must be:

  • Female
  • Aged between 18 and 40 years
  • Experiencing shin pain that has lasted more than 1 month

This is a Brisbane based study. For more information please contact Felix Leung on Phone (07) 3623 7769 or Email
