    shin splints

    Shin splints are eevil. I've never had them as bad before as I do now. :angry1: Probably from starting running too hard too soon after I was able to start, again.

    How can I keep them from getting worse, and hopefully get them to heal? Miracle cures? :toothy12:

    Make sure you have flexible calves, achilles, hamstrings, all the muscles along the back of the leg.

    Make sure your shoes are new and fit well.

    Make sure your stride doesn't have you slamming your foot down on the pavement excessively.

    Strengthen the muscles inside. One exercise I learned was to stand up on the edge of a towel with your toes on the towel. Then, try to bunch up the towel with your toes by pulling it towards you.

    Shin splints are actually a form of tendonitis involoving one of the tibialis muscles (anterior I believe)... anyway... flexiblity and improved strength in that muscle and all of the others muscles that support the ankle will help prevent them. But as with most cases of tendonitis, if you already have it, rest is the bst cure.

    First off, I ain't no doctor, but the following was very useful when I was in the Army, so take it for what it is:

    Take Ibuprophine 800mg's worth. The motrin is a good idea as it is a good antiinflammatory drug, it's non-steroidal and it also has some fever-reducing properties. I'm not certain how old you are (I'm assuming under 30) so you ought to be able to handle 800 mg a day. That is, unless you've had some stomach problems or have had liver or kidney disfunction. Run once a week to sustain what you got but don't go over 3 miles. Stretch them out. Sit on your shins with your knees together, toes pointed backward. You can always swim, bike or stairmaster to keep up your muscular endurance/wind. Icing your shins down at the end of the day is a good way to reduce inflammation also. Go gently with the stretching as the problem with shin splints is an issue of separation and inflammation and not strictly tightening or constricture.

    Be fucking careful with shinsplints, because if you're not, that **** will turn into a stress fracture real quick and that is some bad ****. It'll take 2-4 weeks to heal.

    check, check, I run on trails, mostly, so .. not really check, but I shall work on that more consciously, and I'll try that. :)

    Dude...just don't run. Seriously.
    rest is the best cure.
    No way, dude. I'm finally free after being in a cast for 2 months. :zicon_vik

    Thanks, babe.

    What do shin splints feel like?
    Basically, after you do a lot of running or the like, the front or inside of your shin is really sore. Mine also hurt like a mother when I point my toes, and this time, they're swollen and uber-tender to the touch. I get them almost exactly halfway beyween my ankle and knee, but they're sometimes lower. Mine are on the front of my shin, and a wee bit to the inside, but it can hurt quite a bit farther to the inside.
