Shin Splints

Shin splints are a common overuse injury. The term ‘shin splints’ is colloquially used to describe shin pain along the shin’s inside or front edges. Shin splints are the most common cause of painful shin bones.

What is Shin Splints?

Shin splints is an inflammation of the muscles, tendons, and bone tissue around your tibia. There are two types of Shin Splints:

  • Anterior Shin Splints (or Anterior Tibial Stress Syndrome) - located on the shinbone’s front (or anterior) part and involve the tibialis anterior muscle
  • Posterior Shin Splints (or Medial Tibial Stress Syndrome) - located on the inside rear (or medial/posterior) part of the shinbone and involve the tibialis posterior muscle
