Shin splints refer to pain on either side of the leg bone that is caused by muscle or tendon inflammation. The problem is usually related to a collapsing arch, but may be caused by a muscle imbalance between opposing muscle groups in the leg.


Proper stretching before and after exercise and sports, corrective shoes, or orthotics can help prevent shin splints.
