Shin Splints

out of 5

Do you have pain, tenderness or swelling along your shin bone? Are these symptoms provoked by running? This 6-week program was designed by a Doctor of Physical Therapy and will teach you the best exercises for alleviating pain associated with shin splints.


Shin splints can be subdivided by their location (anterior or posterior) and can be caused by a number of conditions. Anterior shin splints are felt more toward the front of the leg near the anterior muscle compartment (ankle dorsiflexors and toe extensors), whereas, posterior shin splints are felt toward the inside of the lower leg near the muscles of the posterior muscle compartment (tibialis posterior, toe flexors, calf complex).

Only one major risk factor has been shown to be associated with the development of shin splints, which is excessive physical stress (magnitude and/or volume). Not all shin splints are so straightforward, but the vast majority can be controlled by managing the stress being applied to the system. This could include manipulating five major variables:

1. Training frequency, volume or intensity
2. Technique/form
3. Equipment (training surface, shoes)
4. Nutrition
5. Resistance training
