The term shin splint describes pain felt along the inner edge of your shin bone and is a cumulative stress disorder. Shin splint pain concentrates in the lower leg between the knee and ankle. You may be more likely to develop shin splints if you participate in strenuous physical activities or stop-start sports such as tennis, racquetball, soccer, or basketball. Its symptoms include –a dull ache in the front part of the lower leg, pain that develops during exercise, pain on either side of the shin bone, swelling in the lower leg. Shin splints normally require a break from certain physical activities like swimming or walking and give your legs time to rest. The doctor will often suggest you to do the following-keep your legs elevated, use ice packs to reduce swelling, take an over-the-counter pain medication, and wear elastic compression bandages. The discomfort will get resolved completely in a few hours or at most in a few days with rest and limited activity. The suggested amount of downtime is typically about two weeks. Shin splints rarely require surgery. If a muscle tears away from your shin bone, surgery will be necessary to reattach the muscle. An effective way to prevent shin splints is to strengthen the calf muscles and hip muscles, especially the hip abductors. Calf muscle strengthening can be done by placing your toes on the edge of a curb or stair and transferring your weight to one leg. Then slowly lower yourself and raise yourself up again. Repeat this 25 times to strength your calf muscles and preventing shin splints.
