Shin splints, common in rigorous repetitive sports activities such as running, cause pain along the inner edge of the shinbone and inflammation of the muscles and tendons.

Shin Splint

We will look for swelling, stress fractures, tendonitis and other factors that can cause shin pain and may suggest a bone scan or MRI. We may recommend non-surgical treatment including rest, ice, compression, pain medication, physiotherapy and supportive shoes or orthotic inserts.
