Q.

4 yr old girl. complaines of sore shins

My four year old daughter complaines alot about sore shins. Its alway in the evening after a busy day at school, where shes been running and playing. I' m rather concerned about this and hope its not something serious.

Paediatrician

This is usually nothing serious and usually results from exercising too much and for too long a period.In many cases it seems to be aggravated by having flat feet or some other foot problem.Sometimes foot supports are required. If her complaints persist it may be a good idea to see your paediatrician.
