Shin Splints Becoming a Pain?
This is something we treat daily in the clinic and is a common complaint/injury with runners, but you do not have to run to have a diagnosis of shin splints. First things first, what are shin splints? Shin splints refers to pain over the shin bone (tibia). This pain stems from overuse of the muscles/tendons. This diagnosis is typically due to increased training regimens without proper guidance.
There are several causes to shin splints. The most common cause, as stated above, is increasing activity (too much too fast). This can be increasing mileage, speed (cadence), intensity, etc. It can also occur from improper footwear or gait patterns. Any kind of malalignment in the leg i.e. tibial torsion can lead to shin splints as well.
