What is Shin Splints?

Shin Splints is a common term for pain in the shin region. It can be a misleading term and most sports medicine professionals try to avoid using it. This is because shin pain and 'Shin Splints' can be due to several different conditions. One of the most common shin conditions that gets labelled 'Shin Splints' is Medial Tibial Stress Syndrome.

Medial Tibial Stress Syndrome is fairly common in runners. People suffering from Medial Tibial Stress Syndrome will feel shin pain on the inner side of the shin during exercise and also at rest. It is important to consult a sports doctor who can distinguish Medial Tibial Stress Syndrome from other causes of shin pain ('Shin Splints') such as Compartment Syndrome and stress fracture.

What can you do to prevent Shin Splints?

The amount of stress being placed on the shins can be minimised by wearing good quality, supportive running shoes with shock absorbing insoles. It is possible that some cases of Medial Tibial Stress Syndrome could be prevented by correcting problems such as flat feet (excessive pronation) with arch supports.

What should you do if you suffer from Shin Splints?

Most patients respond well to treatment with a chartered physiotherapist. This involves rest, strengthening and stretching exercises, followed by a gradual return to running after symptoms subside. In order to help prevent recurrence of the condition, a bio-mechanical analysis (an analysis of posture at rest and during walking and running) is very useful.

For example, a common cause of the condition is excessive pronation during running. This would be identified during bio-mechanical analysis and corrected with arch supporting insoles.

Many people find that a Cho Pat Shin Splint Compression Sleeve is useful in alleviating shin pain. The elasticated fabric provides gentle support to the entire shin and calf region. The upper and lower Velcro fasteners apply additional compression across the muscles and tendons of the lower leg, reducing stress on the inside of the shin.
