Shin Splints

Shin splints, known as medial tibial stress syndrome (MTSS), can usually be attributed to overloading the muscles of the lower extremities or to biomechanical irregularities.

If you have shin splints, you may notice:

  • Tenderness, soreness or pain along the inner part of your lower leg

  • Mild swelling in your lower leg

At first, the pain may stop when you stop running or exercising. Eventually, however, the pain may be continuous.
