The expression ‘Shin Splints’ refers to shin pain, either along the inside or front edge of the shin. Shin Splints primarily affects participants of running sports. There are two main types of Shin Splints, namely Anterior Shin Splints and Posterior Shin Splints. Found on the front part of the shin bone, Anterior Shin Splints involves the tibialis anterior muscle that lifts and lowers one’s foot. Indeed, it lifts one’s foot during the swing phase of a stride and then it gradually lowers it to prepare one’s foot for the phase of support. One suffers from Anterior Shin Splints if one’s anterior shin pain increases when one lifts one’s toes up while keeping one’s heels on the ground. In the Medical field, Anterior Shin Splints are sometimes also referred to as Anterior Tibial Stress Syndrome (ATSS). Contrary to Anterior Shin Splints, Posterior Shin Splints are found on the inside rear part of the shin bone and involves the tibialis posterior muscle that lifts and controls the medial region of one’s foot arch during the phase of weight bearing. When one’s tibialis posterior is weakened or lacks endurance, one’s foot arch overpronates, thus causing torsional shin bone stress. If one feels pain along the inside rear region of one’s shin bone, one is likely to be suffering from Posterior Shin Splints or tibia stress fractures. In the Medical field, these two conditions are often referred to as Medial
