ratings and reviews)
Shin split is also known as the medial tibial stress syndrome and is generally cause due to the trauma caused to muscle tissues surrounding the tibia. Shin splits are common in athletes and sports persons. Shin splits usually occur between the leg and the ankle or lateral part of the tibia. Runners and aerobic dancers are mostly prone to shin splits. The exact cause of shin splits is unknown and is generally attributed to overloading the lower leg causing stress to the tibia. A sudden increase in activity can fatigue the muscles in the area quickly making the tibia absorb most of the shock. With this stress, the onset of shin split begins. Treating shin splits begin with resting the leg and ice compressions, which help in strengthening the muscles. Rest and ice will help the tibia recover from stress and reduce the inflammation. The pain also is significantly reduced with this treatment. In severe cases of shin split injury, extracorporeal shockwave therapy is given and finally if nothing works, surgery is the only option. Surgery is performed in extreme cases when all other conservative options have been tried. However, surgery also does not guarantee 100% guarantee. Some of the conservative interventions include, refitting of footwear, orthotics and balance training. In some cases, cortisone injections along with calcium and vitamin D supplements are also prescribed.
