How to Treat Shin Splints
Shin splints, also known as medial tibial stress syndrome, are common among athletes across many sports. Abruptly increasing the duration, length or intensity of one’s workout can lead to this lower leg pain that occurs at the front of the leg along the shin bones. If left untreated, the pain may become continuous.
In other words, overdoing it leads to shin splints. Now that you have a better handle on what causes shin splints, let’s move on to how they can they be treated
The good news is that there is a general consensus when it comes to how to heal shin splints. One of the best treatments for shin splints is to give these sore, inflamed tissues a rest by halting or reducing one’s workouts for a period of time.
Ice is another one of the most common treatments for shin splints. This reduces inflammation and is a surprisingly effective when it comes to shin splint treatments.
Stretching is another way to treat shin splints from running. More specifically, stretching the Achilles helps with medial shin splints treatments. Calf stretches are a great anterior shin splint treatment. Stretches are actually good both for shin splints treatment and prevention.
Another favorite when it comes to how to treat shin splint pain is to wear a neoprene leg sleeve for shin splints. Binding the tendons with a shin splint neoprene sleeve or bandage limits stress on them. Plus the compression and warmth speeds healing and reduces painful inflammation.
In our opinion, wearing a sleeve is preferable to wrapping the leg when it comes to how to heal shin splints from running. A sleeve is quicker to apply, it has no layers that may tug at the skin or hair of the leg and there will be no need for adjustment mid-run.
Other ways to treat shin splints might include cross training and avoiding activities or surfaces that put high amounts of stress on this area of the calf. Wearing proper footwear that supports the foot is also an important component of how treat shin splints. (Check out our selection of shoe inserts.)
And keep in mind that all of your questions and efforts on how do you treat shin splint will have done you little good if you do not gradually return to sports or up the intensity, length, etc. of one’s athletic activity too suddenly. As with most injuries, patience is a vital component in how you treat a shin splint.
