What is a Shin Fracture?

Description of the disease

A shin fracture is a injury to the shin bone, which usually occurs due to trauma or overexertion.


Shin fractures are classified as open or closed, displaced or non-displaced, depending on how much the bone has moved or remained in place.


  • Pain in the shin area
  • Swelling and bruising
  • Inability to stand or move


Shin fractures can be caused by injury, fall, car accident, or overexertion.


The diagnosis of a shin fracture is made using X-rays, computed tomography, or magnetic resonance imaging.


Treatment of a shin fracture may include wearing a cast, surgical intervention to repair the bone, physiotherapy, and rehabilitation.


Prevention of shin fractures involves wearing protective gear during sports activities, being cautious when walking on ice and wet floors, and observing safety measures on the roads.


Shin fractures are treated by orthopedic surgeons.
