If you’ve suffered a shin fracture, please Schedule an appointment with one of our orthopedic specialists as soon as possible.
The shinbone, also known as the Tibia, holds the title of the most commonly fractured long bone in the entire body. A tibial shaft fracture can occur anywhere along the length of the bone, below the knee and above the ankle.
Tibial Fractures usually require a major force to break the shin bone. Car accidents, for example, tend to commonly cause fractures of the shin bone. In many cases, the smaller lower leg bone, the fibula will also break.
