The most common cause of shin pain is medial tibial stress syndrome which is most commonly caused by running and jumping sports. Symptoms often include pain along the lower inside border of the shin, pain which worsens with increased duration or intensity of exercise and generally ceases after exercise. Usually medial tibial stress syndrome occurs as a consequence of poor biomechanics (the way the foot and leg move whilst in motion), poor training techniques or over training.
Treatment may include anti- inflammatory management, foot and/or leg taping, footwear advice, foot orthoses, strengthening and stretching exercise and exercise program adjustment.
