Lower leg pain that occurs below the knee either on the front outside part of the leg (anterior shin splints) or the inside of the leg (medial shin splints).
It's a tiny crack in the surface of a bone, usually in the lower leg or the metatarsals of the foot. Stress fractures usually occur when runners are increasing the intensity and volume of their training over several weeks to several months.
Patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS), or "runner's knee," is the irritation of the cartilage on the underside of the patella (kneecap).
The Achilles tendon connects the two major calf muscles to the back of the heel. Under too much stress, the tendon tightens and becomes irritated (tendinitis).
The muscles that run down the back of our thighs bend our knees, extend our legs, drive us up hills, and power finish-line kicks.
Plantar fasciitis is the name for small tears or inflammation of the tendons and ligaments that run from your heel to your toes.
The iliotibial (IT) band lies along the outside of the thigh from the hip to the knee. When you run, your knee flexes and extends, which causes the IT band to rub on the side of the femur. This can cause irritation if you take up your mileage too quickly, especially if you're doing a lot of track work or downhill running.
