Shin Splints

Typical areas for shin splints

Shin Splints

Shin splints refer to pain along the shins, or the front of the leg between the knee and ankle. The pain is typically worse along the lower one-third of the leg.

The muscle in this area controls upward movement of the foot, and the pain is caused by overuse and strain of this muscle.

The most common cause of shin splints is athletic activity that involves running.
