Shin Splints

When patients in the West Valley complain of pain along the shin bone, the likely cause is "shin splints." Shin splints can be troublesome for runners, dancers, basketball and baseball players as well as those who just walk frequently. Many cases of shin splints that Dr. Nadel sees in his West Hills and Westlake Village offices are the result of a change to a patient's normal exercise routine. The pain is caused by overworking muscles and tendons near the tibia. Rest and ice is generally first prescribed to alleviate the pain. Pain relievers may also be helpful in recovering.
