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.

Shin splints describe pain, stiffness and swelling at the shins that starts during and after exercise. This pain may quickly settle after exercise is ceased, or may continue for days after, often feeling worse in the morning. One or both legs may be affected, and the pain is felt in the lower half of the shin bone (tibia).

As other serious conditions can have very similar symptoms to shin splints, namely stress fractures and compartment syndrome (which may be an emergency situation), it is crucial that you get diagnosed by your Podiatrist so that you can receive the best care and outcomes.
