Shin splints are quite common in runners and athletes and often develop as a result of a rapid change in training which could be intensity or volume related, a change in the running/activity surface, excessive pronation or an over ambitious novice training schedule.
Technically referred to as Medial Tibial Traction Periostitis which simply means that there is an excessive pulling taking place at the point where muscles attach to the tibial bone
Very often they settle following a period of rest or modified activity however in some instances the symptoms can become persistent and chronic and have a significant effect on activity levels.
The symptoms often develop or deteriorate during running and may then persist afterwards.
