How to prevent shin splints when running – 4 tips from a physiotherapist

0


If you are suffering from shin splints, the NHS recommends taking paracetamol or ibuprofen to ease the pain.

Try placing an ice pack or bag of frozen vegetables wrapped in a towel on your shin for 20 minutes every two to three hours.

If you must exercise, do so on soft ground or switch to a gentle form of exercise such as yoga or swimming for the time being.

Throw away your old worn-out trainers and buy some new supportive trainers.
