i used to get those all the time. while standing, point your toes up and keep your heel down..hopefully this stretch works for you

Man they suck. I use to take two advil gel caps or tylenol b4 I went and played football and it worked pro. Also after your done running run ice cubes up and down your shines. And if you have a trainer you can get them taped.

realize the mechanics here. when a ski jumper falls through the sky 50 feet he can do so because he's also travelling at 60mi an hour. i know triatheletes who get shinsplints from running slow but when they increase their stride the problem goes away.

also not to step on big randy's pointed toes.... but i thought you had to point your toes away not up to you. that would just contract your shin muscles.

actually the best way to fix your shin splints is to go to a running store and have the fit you for your correct running shoes. I paid 90 bucks for a pair and i havent had shin splints in so long. They say the shoes only last 3 months but i have had mine for at least 6 months and they still do the trick. In addition i also do the stretch that bigrandy suggested i just do it a little different.

did you know that shin splints are actually because of a muscle spasim in the leg that causes the periostem(bone covering) to pull away from the bone, and if it pulls away hard enough it will take little splinters of bone with it. how painful does that sound.

Best thing I know for these are ice baths. If you don't have access to that, however, I know of a real good stretch for them. Stand on one foot. The leg that is off the ground should be straight and your heel should be about 1.5 feet off the ground or so. Point your toes up and hold it for 30 seconds. Do this 3 times on each side.
