If anyone has a home remedy for shin splints, I would love to hear it. They are really killing my groove.
Re: Shin splints - lots of different remedies, but the classic is to take a paper cup, fill it with water and freeze it. Then tear off the paper little by little and use it to ice the affected areas. Using proper shoes will certainly help, but if you are using good shoes and are still feeling pain cut back on running downhill for a while, try to stay off pavement and other hard surfaces as much as possible and take plenty of time to rest/cross train until you are feeling better. That is the stock advice. Doing some form drills to improve your biomechanics will, over the long term, help you run more injury free.
