Great insight to dealing with a niggling problem! Report
I get shin splints in the middle of the night - app0aretnly the flat feet problem. Don't run or anything like that. Report
I like learning so I stay healthy when running. Report
Great info and will help when I get them, which is always. Report
Great article - warm up and stretching afterwards make a big difference. Report
I use to get shin splints a lot and they are very painful. I stopped getting them after I started performing stretches I saw a man recommend on tv. It's been several years so I can't remember the person. Anyway, what he said to do was to walk a little to warm up and then you go up on your toes, back on your heels and then roll you foot to the side, so you are bending it sideways at the ankle, toward the outside of your foot. I do it several times. You will feel this stretch right along the front of the shin. Sorry if my description is not the best. Once I started doing this it made a tremendous difference to me. Also I can do it while I'm out walking if I feel my shins tightening up. Hope this helps someone else. Report
A great article. I suffer from shin splints, therefore causing me to quit walking. Thank you for suggesting the video by Nicole for exercises. Report
