Sharp, or dull aching pain in the front of your leg (shin's area), often experienced during FAST walking, UPHILL JOG/RUN or amateur runners.
With prolong repetitive impact on the shin bone (e.g during running), muscles at front part of shins rub against the shin bone, causing swelling and pain.
Real culprit is due to Calf muscle tightness and causing poor biomechanics during your running/ gait activity.
Education is important on "How to run properly".
The hallmark symptom of runner’s knee (or medically known as ITB syndrome) is pain at the outer side of the knee region.
