Shin Splints

Shin Splints

This is in effect a general term to describe shin pain which can be due to several different conditions. Shin splints are a common injury in any sport involving running activities and are often caused by doing too much training too soon.

 

This condition is often associated with activities such as running, sprinting or jumping. These activities rapidly load bony tissue exceeding its tensile strength. This results in structural failure at a micro level in the bony architecture. These tiny fractures are called micro-fractures.
