Common Symptoms of Shin Splints

Patients suffering from shin splints most commonly complain of pain and stiffness along the front and just to the inside of the shin bone, where the muscles and Tibia join together. In the early stages, when the condition is not as severe, runners will find that the initial pain will often lessen as the run continues, thereby allowing them to "run out of the pain". This then progresses to more significant and severe pain which only worsens as the run continues.
