The shin region is made up of the shin bone (tibia), surrounding smaller muscles and nerves.
Pain in the shin can occur from:
- Sporting and running injuries
- Shin splints
- Irritation of the nerves
- Compartment syndrome
- Poor alignment or muscle imbalances
It is important to come in for assessment so we can identify the cause of your shin pain and begin appropriate treatment. Shin pain can persist and reoccur if left untreated.
If you experience swelling in your legs for no apparent reason such as after sitting for a long period of time please consult your doctor immediately.
