Shin splits are often caused by your foot rolling in when you are running or walking. Using a properly-fitted shoe and/or an orthotic, you can unload the inside part of your foot’s arch to relieve some of the stress on your shins.

The most common symptom of shin splits is an ache on the inside of your lower legs. This progressive achiness in the shins can turn into a stress fracture if you are not careful.

Shin splits often heal on their own with conservative treatment – rest, ice and anti-inflammatories.
