Shin splints (also known as medial tibial stress syndrome) is a debilitating injury that affects 5-35% of runners at some point. It can make even a five-minute run feel like you have run a marathon from the knees down.

We typically see patients who develop this condition after a sudden increase in their running mileage. These runners feel pressure to beat their last race time.

Or, our patients with shin splints are the new runners. These people are usually trying to go from couch to marathon and it is likely their legs haven’t built up the strength to handle the continuous load of running.
