Shin Splint

Have you ever experienced  pain in the inside of the shin possibly radiating down toward your ankle? Or even pain pressing on the shin? If so and if you are a runner chances are that you have a beginning of Shin Splint (medial tibial stress syndrome = MTSS).

You do not necessarily need to be a runner to suffer of MTSS, work out with impact, walking long distances with inadequate shoes can put stress on the shin and the ankle muscles which cause the problem.
