Subject: Shin Splints - more inside
In reply to: Mum 's message, "What are shin splints? My daughter has been told not to dance on concrete or she will get shin splints. Is this an Irish dancing term or a proper medical condition." on Sat, Oct 28 2017, 13:36:54"

Shin Splints is a colloquial term used to describe a condition known in the medical profession as Medial Tibial Stress Syndrome (MTSS). Shin Splints are an overuse injury causing pain down the lower inside edge of the shin bone (Tibia). Its onset can be attributed to a number of different things, one of which for Irish Dancers can be dancing on hard surfaces without much shock absorption like concrete. Dancing on concrete is a risk factor for shin splints, and if your daughter has any of the other risk factors for shin splints then dancing on concrete is going to increase the risk of her getting shin splints, so I would definitely stay away from it if you can.
