A Novel Physical Therapy Approach in Pain Management and Enhancement of Performance in Shin Splints Athletes: A Case Report.


Runners are most commonly attributed to the shin splint, which is showing commonly the symptom of leg pain. It may be misdiagnosed as compartment syndrome as well. This case report depicts the standard condition of medial tibial stress syndrome in a long-distance runner, which is an acute condition with worsening symptoms in many authors' opinion. Patients with accurate symptoms of the conditions may be diagnosed with shin splints for medical usage. Only pain along the posterior medial border of the tibia at the origin of the posterior tibialis muscle should be referred to as shin splints. The chronic form of anterior compartment syndrome may attribute to the runner if they ignore the symptoms of leg pain that occurs in shin splints. Anterior tibial pain during activity is frequent in athletes. It has been linked to various disorders, including periostitis from improper stretching and muscular conditioning, as well as exertional compartment syndromes.
