Shin splints are characterized by pain in the front part of the lower leg. It occurs on the inside edge of the large bone there — the tibia. This condition is common in runners, but can also occur in other physically active people.
Shin splints usually happen during or after a change in the intensity of physical activity, such as running more miles or more frequently.
Shin splints are not a standard medical diagnosis. The condition may also be called medial tibial stress syndrome (MTSS), anterior tibial pain or exercise-induced leg pain. If you are suffering from shin splints in Edison, NJ contact Backsmart Wellness Center.
