Symptoms of Shin Splints:
Pain along your shins can be either side of your shin bone especially in the warm up
Regarding exercise you might feel it more at the start and it might go only to return afterwards
It progresses to pain that completely stops you from running
So what is it?
It’s traction overload of some of your deeper calf muscles to where these muscles attach to the shin bone or it’s stress on the shin bone itself or both.
There is a continuum of bone stress from shin splints to stress fractures (stress fractures are much more common in runners and endurance athletes as opposed to field sports like GAA, rugby or soccer)
