Shaking Off Shin Splints

For athletes, sports injuries are a common adversary, but that doesn’t mean they should be ignored. Rather, the reverse is true.

Before entering private practice, Dr. Hubert Lee finished a fellowship in sports medicine at Virginia Mason Medical Center in Seattle. And because of that experience, he’s well aware of just how persistent and painful untreated sports injuries can become.

CarePlus Foot & Ankle Specialists is dedicated to informing patients and empowering them to make good choices that support the health of their feet. In light of that, we’ve decided to dedicate this post to a common sports injury that many people don’t know how to recognize, let alone deal with: Shin splints.
