shin pain treatment.

Pain management for your shin

The lower leg houses two bones: the tibia and the fibula. The larger bone that you feel on the front of your leg is the tibia. Shin pain felt during and after exercise should be checked out and is often an indicator that your body is trying to tell you something. Often, this pain is referred to commonly as ‘shin splints’ and can lead to other problems if not successfully diagnosed and treated. Treating the pain as it starts is key to preventing larger issues.
