As spring approaches, more runners will hit the streets. Some runners may hit the streets a little too hard, and when that happens, shin splints can be the painful result.

Shin splints are the most prevalent running injury, accounting for 13 percent of all injuries reported by runners. They occur most often when a runner ramps up their mileage aggressively, changes their route to include more hills or concrete, or wears worn-out or non-supporting shoes.
