Pain to either side of the leg (tibia) bone, caused by muscle or tendon inflammation. It is commonly related to excessive foot pronation (collapsing arch), but may be related to a muscle imbalance between opposing muscle groups in the leg. Proper stretching, physical therapy and corrective orthotics can help prevent or alleviate shin splints.
