    Shin Splints In A Nutshell

    Shin splints, also known as medial tibial stress syndrome (MTSS), is a common overuse injury that affects the lower leg, specifically the shin bone or tibia. It is characterized by pain and inflammation along the inner edge of the tibia, often experienced by runners.

    Shin splints typically occur when the muscles, tendons, and bone tissue around the tibia become overworked due to repetitive stress, inadequate footwear, poor running mechanics, or an abrupt increase in activity level.

    Symptoms of shin splints include a dull ache or sharp pain in the front of the lower leg, tenderness, and swelling in the affected area.
