Avoid shin splints!!!

Shin splints, or pain along the bone on the front of the shin, are also quite common causes of leg pain from sports injuries. This condition is typically a result of overworking the muscles, tendons, and bone tissue of the legs.

For shin splints, as for so many other sports injuries, proper warm-ups and careful avoidance of overexertion can prevent the condition. If shin splints occur, rest, icing, and over-the-counter pain medications are usually sufficient to alleviate the pain.
