Shin Splints

Shin splints are a painful and burdening condition for anyone who is physically active. At My FootDr we aim to help patients live a healthy and active lifestyle without pain.

The main symptom of shin splints is pain and stiffness in the shin during and after exercise. The discomfort can continue for days after the initial pain. The pain is caused by muscles strains from overuse of one of two muscles; tibialis anterior (pain in the upper outside of shin) or timbales posterior (pain in the lower inside of shin).
