Shin splints- are the name given to pain at the front of the lower leg. It’s an overuse syndrome involving the leg muscles that stabilize and move the ankle and foot. During the first injury the muscle fibers tear from their periosteal attachment surface. During the healing phase they can become fibrotic which makes the area less resilient than normal muscle attachments. During further uses they fail to lengthen properly which causes exponential increases in tension on the attachment and a repeat of the injury. Proper treatment will break down the fibrous tissue making the muscle behave more like a rubber band than a rope as it lengthens to the end of its range of motion. -Read More
