Let’s set the record straight once and for all… Trying to cure shin splints isn’t always easy, but it can be quick if you do a few simple things right.

 

If you think this article is just going to be about icing techniques or new shoes or anything remotely close to the generic shin splints treatment advice you read about every else, then you’re in for a shock.

 

Pain relief techniques like icing are an important part of this three step process, but they’re not the only part and in this article I’m going to show the “broad strokes” of what it really takes to cure shin splints once and for all.

 

Let’s get into it…

 

Cure Shin Splints – Step 1: Find out What’s Causing Your Shin Splints

 

Yes, most people who ask me how they can cure shin splints, have a problem. They have no idea what’s causing them in the first place!

 

The truth is shin splints is a “gutter term” that refers to pain along the shinbone or tibia, but this pain can be caused by a multitude of different pathologies and conditions, and it’s downright insane to start following some generic treatment program if you have no idea what’s actually causing your shin splints.

 

So what exactly is causing your shin splints? I’m glad you asked…

Overload: Simply put this means exercising too much, too soon or with too much intensity, exercising on hard or uneven surfaces can also cause overload.

 

Biomechanical Imbalances: There are three main biomechanical imbalances that shin splint sufferer commonly have… weak calves, weak or inactive glutes and flat feet

 

Poor Running Form: do you have bad running form? If you’re like most people with shin splints chances are you do, and it’s keeping you in pain!

 

Poor Running Shoes: Finding the perfect pair of shoes for your feet can be as hard as finding the perfect life partner.

 

A good tip is to visit a specialty running store with a worn pair of shoes, the people that work there can tell a LOT about your foot type  from looking at the wear pattern on a used shoe – and they’ll be able to use this information to match you with a great shoe that suits your specific foot type.

 

Think about it this way; even if you ice your shins religiously, take painkillers every time you’re active and rest for days on end… if you’ve got bad running form, poor or inappropriate running shoes or one or more of the biomechanical imbalances, you’re shin splints are practically guaranteed to come back with a vengeance!

 

Unless you find out what’s actually causing them, and treat that directly!

 

Cure Shin Splints – Step 2: Treat the Pain

 

Now that you’ve identified what’s causing your pain it’s time to treat it. Rest, ice and painkillers are great for doing this. (But you already knew that anyway)

 

Just do your body a favour and don’t take painkillers for any more than 2 weeks, and preferably no more than 3 days.

 

Painkillers like Advil and Ibuprofen are classed as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID’S) and long-term use of them has been linked with everything from digestive problems to stroke.

 

If you have long term pain and want a good alternative Google a product called “ Heal-n-Soothe ” which is a safe and natural alternative that I highly recommend!

 

Cure Shin Splints – 3. Treat the Underlying Causes Of Y our Pain

 

It should go without saying that after you’ve identified what’s causing your pain, you’ll take action to correct those underlying causes. For example, if you identify that you have worn out running shoes and inflexible calves you’ll stretch you’re calves and get a good pair of shoes that match your foot type.

 

If you realize that you’ve been increasing you’re training volume very quickly and that you’ve got flat feet or collapsed arches… then you’ll step back you’re training volume and go and get appropriate shoes with good arch support and shoe inserts.

 

There you have it. Now you know the proper way to get rid of shin splints – all you need to do is follow these three simple steps and your pain will disappear.

Here Are 2 Powerful Ways To Relieve Shin Pain FAST…

 

As you’ve probably heard ice is an effective pain relief technique… apart from numbing the pain, it also causes a rush of blood nutrients and into the area and flushes out the enzymes that cause inflammation very quickly.

 

Warning: When using these techniques keep the ice on for as long as it is comfortable for YOU. Obviously, there will be a slight discomfort from the cold, but as soon as pain, numbness or excessive discomfort is experienced, it’s time to remove the ice.

 

Relieve Shin Pain Technique #1: Ice Massage

 

Ice massages forces cold deep into your muscles and bones which enhances circulation, flushes out the body’s inflammatory response and if you press a little harder, it also breaks up any scar tissue.

 

Here’s how to do it…

 

Buy some paper cups, fill them with water and put them in your freezer

Pull out a cup and tear off the top half inch or so.

 

Massage the exposed ice into the most painful areas of your shins… you’ll KNOW you’ve found the right spot when you’re on it… you’ll likely feel a sharp pain there.

 

For a minimum of 5 minutes, push the ice into the painful area and up and down your shins. Keep moving around, and don’t let the ice sit in one spot too long.

 

Do this at least 3 times a day. Remember, if your skin gets numb from the cold it’s time to stop.

 

Relieve Shin Pain Technique #2: Ice Dipping

 

This is the most powerful icing technique I’ve found. I dare you, try this techniques today, you’ll see for yourself that this is by far the most powerful pain relief technique you’ve ever used…

 

Fill up your tub half full with water, and add a bunch of frozen bottles of water or a big bag of ice to get the water ICE COLD.

 

Adjust the height of the water to your convenience then dip your lower leg into the ice water, submerge it all the way to your knees.

 

Hold it in there for 10 seconds, by then you should be desperate to pull your legs out otherwise the water isn’t cold enough…

 

Finally, dry off and walk around for a bit. Wait at least 5 minutes then repeat the process 3-5 times.

 

As powerful as these techniques are, they are only the beginning.
