Re: Shin Pain
I get shin splints occassionally but I think mine is caused from my foot mechanics. My right ankle is collapsed & turned in, so I have to walk w/my foot turned out and it feels like my left leg is a little longer. So all this affects my muscles in there. I know shin splints can be caused by small stress fractures, but it also happens with tight muscles or imbalance, and doing alot of activity or overdoing it when you're not used to it. I usully get in my left shin, probably because I favor that leg and put more pressure on it. They say also that arch supports can help and making sure not to wear shoes that are worn out. So I guess alot comes down to good foot support and alot of stretching.
