    I've read some of the threads here on shin splints but ice and rest aren't doing anything. Would I see a chiropractor, orthopedist or another type of doctor?

    My pain is in the inner part of my shins and it is a lot worse on my left than on my right shin. I'm fine as long as I don't play tennis, but if I play I have to wait a week before I can play again.

    Thanks in advance.

    You would go to an orthopaedist, preferably one with expertise in sports medicine.
