Medial Tibial Stress Syndrome (MTSS)

Medial Tibial Stress Syndrome (MTSS) is one of the most common injuries in runners, dancers as well as in the military, and because of this, it is especially prevalent in soldiers that run and dance.

There has been a shed load of studies attempting to link biomechanical features to the onset of MTSS for pre-exercise screening, mostly in military populations, and in this video, Russell Wright, from widely acclaimed videos such as "Achilles Tendinopathy in Runners", "Advanced Ankle Rehab" and "Assessment and Management of Tibialis Posterior tendinopathy" breaks it all down for you, including:

  • likely subjective history and progressions of MTSS

  • palpation

  • Tibial stress fractures

  • differential diagnosis

  • assessment of the lower limb, foot and hip

  • running biomechanics

  • running assessment

  • range of movement assessment

  • imaging

  • treatment of MTSS

  • manual therapy

  • reducing myofascial restrictions

  • training new movement strategies

  • improving running mechanics

  • taping

  • rest/activity modification

  • return to sport/running
