What causes shin splints?

Shin splints are medically known as medial tibial stress syndrome, and are most commonly seen in athletes. They occur when the muscles, tendons and bone tissues start to tear or become inflamed around the shin bone. This causes discomfort when performing physical activities.

Most people will experience shin splints when starting a new physical activity, or increasing the intensity of their current routine. Other factors that can cause the inflammation include shoe selection, flat feet or feet with abnormally high arches.

When the foot experiences contact with the ground, it is important that the force is absorbed by the shoe and mechanics of the foot. If you consistently suffer from shin splints, you should visit one of our Texas offices. Dr. Marco Vargas will analyze your foot and may prescribe custom orthotics, or suggest a shoe that best fits your daily routine and lifestyle. He will treat the cause of the problem so that it does not reoccur.
