How To Cure Shin Splints

1. Avoid running on hard surfaces. Run on soft surfaces such as grass or rubber tracks.
2. When resting, levitate and ice the shin area. Rest your legs on pillows and ice preferably with a bag of frozen peas (Avoid using ice packs as the intensity of the chemical cold can burn your skin)
3. Ask your sports therapist or Physiotherapist about “Dynamic Taping”. A New approach to sports tape.
4. Stay hydrated. Make sure your muscles and body are hydrated so your muscles can stay healthy and limber.
5. Stretch, stretch, stretch. Make sure to keep your calf and shin muscles stretched and loose. This will help prevent future shin splints.
