Depends...: Would need more information...Could be shin splints. "shin splint" typically refers to pain on the front of the lower leg, . Pain in this area may come from medial tibial stress syndrome (mtss), stress fractures, or compartment syndrome. Identifying the underlying reason for your pain will guide a specific plan of care. Treatments usually consist of rest, stretching, ice, massage, or orthotics.
