COMMENTARY Medial tibial stress syndrome (MTSS) is one of the most common lower leg injuries in sports. Some studies show it accounting for 6% to 16% of all running injuries and also being responsible for as much as 50% of all lower leg injuries reported in select populations. (1,2) Athletic trainers have been attempting to prevent MTSS through various methods for years. But which methods have worked? What exactly causes "'shin splints"? Can we prevent MTSS? As clinicians working with running athletes or patients, we must thoroughly understand MTSS in order to develop effective prevention methods.
