Shin Splints

What is it?

Shins splints is commonly seen as an overuse injury in runners. Pain is felt along the shin and develops gradually over a period of weeks to months. However, it may occur after a single excessive bout of exercise. Training errors and abnormal biomechanics can cause shin splints. Too much exercise without the proper amount of rest is another cause for the injury. A sudden increase in training will overload your ability to heal during rest and injury may result.


  • Pain will occur when exercising starts and decrease when exercise continues. It will be worse when you stop or in the morning.
