AFX Technical Paper: MTSS aka. “Shin Splints”

When most people hear the term ‘shin splints’, they tend to think of a very painful condition caused by stress fractures in the shin. While they are right that it definitely can be very painful, ‘shin splints’ is actually a catch-all phrase that can refer to many different types of activity-related lower leg pain – not just fractures. In this Technical Paper we look at one of the most common form of shin splints: Medial Tibial Stress Syndrome (MTSS). How common? It has been reported that 13.1% of all running injuries and a whopping 22% of all aerobic dance injuries are MTSS. One of the best solutions?
