    someone once told me that stretching the calves prior to and after the workout will help, I still get them every once in a while but usually only when I am out of shape and a little heavier, also you can try changing sneakers...good luck!!

    Reduce your volume. Strengthen your tibialis anterior by doing dorsiflexion. Most of the time the muscle are weak and they pull away from the bone, causing you pain. Apply ice, it works wonders. Perform cardio on low impact machines, bikes, precors, etc. Stay off the blacktop/pavement.

    ...I'll bet if you change your shoe brand the splints will go away. I used to wear Pumas to run in and they gave me BAD shin splints. I went crazy trying to figure out what the poblem was. I swtiched to Adidas and Voila!! No more splints!!

    tycin, i had the worst case of shin splints so believe me i think i know what i'm talking about. it is preventable over time. first thing is go to a running store and buy an actual pair of running shoes, second is to stretch the calves before running stretch stretch and stretch, third apply ice after your workouts and massage your shins and calves, alot of the pain has to do with the surface your running on so if your running outside on a track, run on the inside of the track (the grass) if you can, then asphalt and last concrete (sidewalks) start off slow (maybe even with just walking fast to start) then build up slowly. i can tell you honestly from the time i started suffering from shin splints to visiting rehabilitaion centres to gradually running with no pain at all took me aprx 4 months. good luck.

    you can use medical tape and tape around that will help to reduce the pressure but you will walk funny used to do it for football ..Shavve youre legs where you plan to tape because its going to hurt ALOT if you dont want to take that tape off
