Shin splints refers to pain in the front of the lower legs. The pain is located along the inside edge of the tibia, the large bone in the lower part of the leg.
Pain most often occurs during or right after a change in activity level, such as running more often or increasing the number of miles.
Although the term shin splints is often used, it is not a defined medical diagnosis.
