Shin Splints

Recommended Posts

how would i get rid of or make my shin splints feel better? they got really bad after iv been workin and walkin around in work boots all day.

my mom and sister have this gel wrap for horses with a bum leg that iv been using and seems to work okay, there was a special horse doctor at one of the shows that said it will work good for humans too. what else would you suggest to start making the shin splints better? i wanna try everything so it gets better faster

this is the stuff iv been using.

I used to get shin splints when I ran a lot. After many months trying to shake it, I found a custom pair of shoes solved my problem becasue I was running "flat footed".

I have seen runners that run with compression sleeves on their shins as well.

Might check into a different set of work boots and see if that helps first!

Also, exercises to strenghten the muscles in your legs can help as well.

Let me know how this works, hate to see you have to go under the knife!

Talk to you soon,

Jason

I have been dealing with shin splints when I run as well. Could you suggest some leg exercises to help strengthen the leg muscles (particularly those around the shin)?

There are a bunch of good videos on YouTube showing "shin exercises".

Here is one i found that goes through a few different exercises showing how to strengthen your shins to help stop shin splints.

Have a great day,

Jason
