Shin splints and Botox

I cannot see this being a good idea, not to mention the cost would be outrageous! Ice, compress, and rest is what I'd recommend.

Botox and shin splints

Treating shin splints with cosmetic Botox isn't practiced in our facility-and isn't something I've read or ever heard of. Rest is what I would recommend.

Shin splints and Botox

There is no scientific articles that suggests that Botox can be used for shin splints. i suspect it would be prohibitively expensive and not necessary. Leg rest and orthotics and RARELY surgery helps
