Need help with Shin Splints

Shin splints are an overuse problem. You get shin splints from overloading your leg muscles, tendons or shin bone. Shin splints happen from overuse with too much activity or an increase in training. Most often, the activity is high impact and repetitive exercise of your lower legs.

As the weather gets warmer, we will be going outside more and getting back to our outdoor exercise, like running. If you aren’t stretching enough, you could end up with Shin Splints; here’s how to stretch them. When you do this stretch you should feel it from the top of your foot through your shin. Hold for 30 seconds at minimum. Then head outside!
