In almost all cases conservative treatment will be sufficient to be able to resume all activities. Relative rest which means avoiding stress to the attachment of the muscles at the level of the shin will help but further input from physiotherapy and footwear modification/insoles will be necessary. A thorough gait analysis will detect if there is abnormal movement in the ankle or foot (overpronation, forefoot overload…) and this will affect the recovery. Surgery is normally not necessary.
