What is medial tibial stress syndrome?

Medial tibial stress syndrome, also called shin splints, is caused by pain along the medial (inside) part of the tibia (shin bone). Shin splints occur during physical activity and result from too much force on the shinbone and connective tissue attaching muscles to it.
