FAQ’s on Sports Injuries

What are shin splints?

Shin splints is a general term used to describe exercise-induced pain in the front of the lower legs, or shins.

The shin pain can be felt during or after running. The pain is felt along the shin bone (tibia), which runs down the inner part of your shin. At first you will feel a dull, aching pain. If you ignore it and continue to run, it can become very painful and you may have to stop exercising altogether.

It’s really important not to “run through the pain” because shin pain could be a sign of an injury to the bone and surrounding tissues in your leg. Continued force on your legs will make the injury and your pain worse.

If possible, stop doing the activity which causes the problem for at least two weeks.

What is runners knee?

During your run, you may develop pain at the front of the knee, around the knee or behind the kneecap. The pain may be dull or it could be sharp and severe.
