Shin Splints from Running

Here is a look at the possible causes of and remedies for shin splints.

There could be many sources of the pain. The real issue is finding what caused it and fix the problem. Exercise is obviously the main culprit, but there is probably an underlying problem such as the shoes you wear. More causes include not stretching properly and the environment you are exercising in such as running at the gym on a treadmill or running around your block on the pavement. Carrying your body weight while your feet are pounding on pavement can be very stressful to your legs. There isn't much there to absorb the shock.

There are many remedies that can help ease the pain of shin splints, however, the main thing is staying off of your feet until the pain is gone. Do not try to suffer through the pain. This could cause more harm than good. Your legs need time to heal before you try again. You should also put ice on your legs every night for about half an hour. This helps reduce swelling. Anti-inflammatory medication such as Aleve can also be taken to help with swelling. If possible, message your legs every night along with the ice to promote healing.

Once your legs are healed and you feel you're ready to start exercising again, you should take some preventative measures to keep the pain from coming back. The first thing to look at is your shoes. Are they made specifically for running and exercise? You can go to any sports store and they will be able to tell you if you need new shoes. Another thing is stretching. This is very important. It helps warm your muscles which reduces strain. You wouldn't think of starting your car and instantly driving off in 20 degree weather, would you? Your body is the same way. One more tip is to stay off the pavement until your body can handle the stress you're putting it through. Try running on a treadmill if one is handy and if not the grass should do just fine. Good luck!!
