This condition refers to pain along the shinbone (tibia). The pain may be felt either on the front outside part of the leg (anterior) or the inside of the leg (medial).
What causes shin splints?
This problem occurs when there is an overuse injury. This can be seen in active people who do “too much, too soon”.
Often associated with this condition are findings of a flat foot (the shin muscles are involved in maintaining the arch of the foot) or a muscle imbalance of the lower limb.
Treatment is aimed at helping control pain, improving foot and leg function and exercises to strengthen the involved muscles.
