Shin Splints


Shin splints are the given term for pain radiating along the tibia or the shin. Shin splints are most commonly associated with exercise as they tend to occur during physical activities where the bone and muscle are over stressed from a repetitive activity such as running. Changes in physical activity regiments can attribute to stronger shin splint symptoms where the body is not used to an excess of activity.
