Some of the common symptoms include tenderness or soreness in the area, swelling along the shinbone, and pain that intensifies with activity or running. Individuals suffering from medial tibial stress syndrome experience difficulty in walking or running for long distances at a normal pace.

A chiropractor may be able to provide adjustments which can help with mobilization and reduce discomfort. Physiotherapy can assist with the rehabilitation process and may include activities such as stretches and strength training which can prevent recurrence of MTSS symptoms. Massage therapy has also been seen to be beneficial in breaking up tissue adhesions which can lead to pain relief from MTSS.
