With thanks to www.patient.co.uk What causes shin splints? Experts do not all agree on the cause of shin splints and the exact cause is not known. They are thought to be caused by overuse or overactivity and typically occur in runners. There are certain things that have been suggested that may make shin splints more likely. These include: A sudden increase in training frequency or intensity. A lack of calcium. Hard running surfaces. Running up an incline Previous leg injury. Poorly fitted or inadequate running shoes that do not support the foot and ankle. Various problems with muscles in the lower leg and foot position, including over-pronation of the foot. (The foot (and ankle) normally roll slightly inward when we move. Over-pronation is where the foot rolls inward more than normal.) Some experts suggest that shin splints are caused by small tears in the structure of the membrane between the two bones of the leg below the knee (the tibia and fibula). This structure is called the interosseous membrane. Others suggest that they may also be caused by inflammation of tendons (tendonitis), muscle sprains, or inflammation of the membrane surrounding the tibia and fibula bones (periostitis). Tiny fractures (microfractures) in the surface of the tibia have also been suggested as a cause.
