Is there a vitamin or medicine for treatment of shin splints ?

My son is 18 years of age and has ran cross country and track all throught out middle school and High school. He leaves for the Navy SEALS August. He has been to sports Doctors, even had ex rays of his legs. We have changed shoes several different times. Is there a vitamin or any medicine that maybe he could take to maybe help him?

I have severe medial shin pain especially when exercising on the treadmill at a higher speed or higher incline. The pain is constant but worse with exercise. I got XRays and it showed mild cortical thickening at the proximal medial metaphysis and the proximal tibial diaphysis. My doctor says it s a normal finding but I m worried it s worse because the pain is pretty severe. Any thoughts?
