Knee Pain can be caused by damage to the surrounding structures of the knee: muscles, tendons, ligaments etc.. This can be caused by injuries to the knee, excessive force or pressure on the joint, obesity, osteoarthritis or poor knee alignment.
Shin Pain and Shin Splints
If you have Shin Splints and you continue to follow the same training program and wear the same footwear then there will be no surprises when your Shin Splints dont magically disappear. ‘Pushing through the pain’ is not advised as if the cause of the Shin Splints is left untreated then the shin splints could potentially cause stress fractures to your tibia.
