By Diana Kohnle

(HealthDay News) -- Shin splints are a common running injury. They occur when the tissue, muscles and tendons near the tibia bone in the front of the leg become inflamed.

The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons says common symptoms of shin splints include:

  • Pain along the front of the tibia.
  • Swelling around the front of the leg.
  • Pain in the leg ranging from a dull, throbbing ache to a shooting pain.
  • Pain that occurs during and after exercise.
  • Tenderness when the painful area is touched.
