Most commonly, shin splints appear when an athlete increases the intensity and duration of their activity too quickly. They also appear frequently in athletes who stop and start suddenly, as in tennis, basketball, and soccer. The tendons and muscles are unable to absorb the impact of the shock and so become fatigued, transferring the impact to the connective tissue which becomes overloaded.
