Shin splints and calf pain

What is it

Shin splints is when you have pain along your shin which is caused by the lower leg muscles pulling on the bone due to overuse. Shin splints are a common sporting injury.


Symptoms of shin splints include sharp or aching pain that runs on the front or back of the shin. Pain is worsened when exercise duration or intensity is increased. ‘Pushing through the pain’ is not advised as it can cause the shin splints to worsen or cause long term muscle and bone damage.
