Shin Splints Physiotherapy | Move Physiotherapy Fremantle
Shin Splints is a common, albeit also frequently misdiagnosed presentation, causing pain and discomfort in the lower part of your shin bone. It is most commonly felt in the centre and inner portion of your shin.
In the early stages of this presentation, people will generally experience a mild discomfort as they commence running or a weight bearing activity; which soon dissipates during the activity, only for it to return during the cool down period. As the condition progresses, it can remain during the exercise and often for days following the activity.
Shin splints are highly common in runners, and sports people whose principal sport requires prolonged times of running and jumping. It is thought to affect between 13 and 20% of all runners (short, middle and long distance).
