Default Treating shin splints?

Any insight from any of you who've experienced these? Does it make you more susceptible to them in the future after you get one?

i had them because i never used to stretch and i was overweight, i stretch all the time now, my legs are stronger (so better weight distribution) and i've lost a lot of weight.

stretching will help, the cause for my shin splints were tight calf muscles and tight quadriceps (front thigh muscles) that irritated that ligament over my knee.

What stretches do you do? I stretch a little bit because I know it's real important, but apparently I don't do it nearly enough.
And thanks for all this help you provide.

Here are some stretches, they help, but they won't fix the problem.


Right now, you're experiencing the splints because you'r an inexperienced runner. It will take a few months for your calves to strengthen and toughen to the point that you don't have that aching in your shins.

For now, RICE is the best option, and I've also seen people tape their calves tight on runs to try and hold the muscle and bone together. That works quite well actually.


But until your lower legs can toughen a bit, I'm afraid the pain will be there.


PS Try running on grass, a track, or a treadmill instead of pavement at first, this will help to slowly toughen your legs up and won't be nearly as painful because there will be much more give to the surface that you are running on.

i'm a fan of the 2nd stretch she explains in this video.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tfCLuuhFMrc

this stretch is for the upper thigh

and of course the glutes and hamstring stretch, by standing shoulderlength apart, hanging down trying to touch the floor without bending your legs.

i also did an inner thigh stretch by just putting my foot on a high place and stepping outwards, so creating a 90 degree angle and more degrees.

i try to do it before and after i run, about once or twice 30 seconds every stretch

you're welcome, boxers gotta help each other out right?

^^^^^^^^ Best advice there!

When i joined the armed i had them really bad but there is no real fix to get them better apart from rest and running in the correct conditions. Running on grass and tracts etc is the best thing to do

Would the problem escalate if I keep running on pavement? Or do you only recommend that to avoid the pain? Because for me, I only feel the pain for the first five minutes when I run, and then I completely forget about it and stop feeling it afterward because I become unfocused on it. It's when I'm in the gym when it bothers me most because the pain doesn't disappear because the stopping and starting of rounds and such and it affects my performance. I ask because there isn't a track around here, or much consistent grass to run on.

try running on the balls of your feet. basically as if you are on your toes. never let your heels touch the ground. its hard work and tyering to begin with, as your calfs have to act as spring (they absorb the shock, not your shins) but keep at it and you will end up with huge calfs too

I used to do ridiculous amounts of skipping. It was one of my favourite exercises and sometimes I'd overdo it and get really bad shin splints. After not being able to train for a long time because of them, and it happening a few too many times, I went and searched for treatments.

The only one that worked; it worked straight away and never came back again, was acupuncture. A form of it called plum blossom needling or something. Seven star plum blossom I think.

It's where they take this acupuncture needle but instead of the single needle it has seven little needle tips, and they run it up and down your shin until there are millions of little spots. Kind of like being tattooed.

Anyway, I didn't think it was going to work, but I rested for a day or two afterward, tried some very light training, didn't feel any pain at all. The next day I started out light again, nothing so got into a bit more, then tried skipping again, and absolutely nothing. No pain.

It never came back. I recommend this to everyone. Get acupuncture and ask for this Seven Star Needling technique. Best thing for splints.

Oh, as for running etc, always try to find an oval/park to run around. Pavement sucks.
