Shin Splints

Shin Splints are very common for athletes, runners and dancers. They cause throbbing or aching pain in the front of your leg, below the knee. Shin Splints are often caused by overused muscles due to running on hard surfaces or a lack of stretching/warm-up. Over-pronators are more susceptible to getting shin splints, as are those who wear worn-out shoes when they work out.
