14 Causes of Leg Pain

5. Running or Jogging.

Getting into shape can be a challenge. For one, your body is deconditioned to a particular exercise, but also your legs really become quite stressed with exercise. When many people take up a weight loss program (especially in the beginning of the year), they typically go at it with the best of intentions and overdo it. Yes, moderation is the best policy when it comes to many things in life, but when you start a new workout program that includes running, you need to understand that doing too much too soon can cause your shins to ache and feel painful. This is commonly a condition called shin splints and the only way to get rid of them is to rest your legs. This can really cause a damper on your new workout program so make sure to take it slow and ease into your workouts.
