Is it possible to have shin splints while on crutches?
Patient : Ok so i had surgery on my tibia and fibula in early november for sports related problems. Of course there was pain but that only lasted for about two weeks. Lately i have been getting the worst aching feeling down my shin bone (tibia) i read online that i could have a shin splint? Normally i'd actually think i had that but i dont know how i would get them when i cant even put any sort of pressure on my leg? i really need help... i have no clue whats the matter im goign to see my doctor tuesday but i cant wait that long!! i am on crutches if that changes anything and i am a teen girl ! sorry for the length; any sort of input would be great! thanks!
