Couture, Christopher J.; Karlson, Kristine A.
Physician and Sportsmedicine, v30 n6 p29-36 Jun 2002
Tibial stress injuries, commonly called shin splints, often result when bone remodeling processes adopt inadequately to repetitive stress. Physicians who are caring for athletic patients must have a thorough understanding of this continuum of injuries, including medial tibial stress syndrome and tibial stress fractures, because there are implications for appropriate diagnosis, management, and prevention.
