Shin Splint

January 30, 2013 by

Shin Splints – Often misdiagnosed and rare in the wider population. Real Shin Splints is referred to as medial tibial stress syndrome (MTSS) occurs with overload to the muscles in the area. As you can imagine, the muscle in the lower leg are designed to work hard and don’t injure that easily. MTSS was first recognised in Army recruits where they went from little to ALOT of activity. This is common factor to look for when diagnosing MTSS as well as pain on the inside of the shin, sometimes with bobbly bits on the bone that are painful to touch.
