The treatment for shin splints includes several weeks of rest.. you can take anti-inflammatory medications, or use cold packs and mild compression to feel better. Stretching exercises can also help.
Be sure to warm up and stretch thoroughly before you exercise. Increase training slowly. If you start to feel the same pain, stop exercising immediately. Use a cold pack and rest for a day or two. Return to training again at a lower level of intensity. Increase training even more slowly than before.
