What are shin splints?

Shin splints tend to be the name given to exercise induced pain in the lower leg, specifically along the front of the leg between the knee and the ankle, the area known as the shin.

Shin splints are really a symptom rather than a specific diagnosis because they are probably caused by a number of different problems. Shin splints are one of the most common problems in the lower leg in people who exercise or play sports.

In typical shin splints, pain is felt more over the medial (inner) part of your shin. Pain felt over the lateral (outer) part of your shin may not be due to shin splints and may be due to a compartment syndrome in your leg.

Shin splints are sometimes called medial tibial stress syndrome.
