Shin splints, or medial tibial stress syndrome, is a very common
condition. It is pain that runs along the shinbone, the long bone
in the front of your lower leg (called the tibia). Shin splints
aren't a single medical condition. Instead, it’s a
symptom of an underlying problem. The pain is the result of an overload
on the shinbone and the connective tissues that attach your muscles
to the bone. The causes are varied: flat feet, running, dancing,
increased intensity of training, stress fractures (tiny hairline
breaks in the bone), and a change of training surface (i.e., track
to asphalt) can all be causes.
- Tenderness, soreness, or pain along the inner part of your lower
- Mild swelling
- Weakness or numbness in the feet
A calf strain is an injury
to the muscles and tendons in the back of the leg, below the knee.
Often called a “pulled” muscle, a strain occurs when
the muscle fibers or tendons are stretched or torn. This condition
can occur during any physical activity where you push off forcefully
from your toes. It may occur in running, jumping, or lunging.
- Immediate calf pain
- You may hear or feel a pop or snap in the calf
- Difficulty rising on toes
- Bruising and swelling may occur
