Shin Splints

lacing running shoesShin splints, which refer to pain along the shinbone, are commonly associated with highly active people such as runners or military recruits; however, anyone engaging in sudden, intense physical activity can experience this condition. For example, if you go on a long walk after being inactive for a while, you may be prone to shin splints.

What Are the Causes?

The root cause of shin splints is the overuse of muscles in the front and inside of your calves. This excessive strain can lead to fatigue, tightness, inflammation, and adhesions forming within the affected muscles.
