Shin splint’s area of discomfort typically measures about 10-15 cm. Shin splint is developed when the bone tissues and muscles in the leg are overworked during your runs. It happens over a period of time when constant pounding and stress are placed on the bones, muscles, and joints of the lower legs, resulting to irritation and inflammation which then leads to pain.
Shin splint symptoms could include sharp, razor-like pain which may be felt during and after the exercise. Pain is aggravated when you touch the sore part. Failure to rehab a previous shin splint is likely to have reoccurring problem. Know the proper stretches and the right treatment approach to completely eliminate shin splint symptoms.
