Thanks for your query.Shin splints
usually result from overuse. Repeated movements of the foot can cause damage where the tibialis muscles attach to the tibia. Soon the edge of the muscles may begin to pull away from the bone. The injured muscle and the bone covering (the periosteum
) become inflamed.
I advise you to-
1. Take rest. It plays a key role in decreasing pain and inflammation.
2. Stop doing the activity that caused the problem, at least until their symptoms are under control.
3. Apply cold
packs and take anti-inflammatory medications like Motrin
to calm pain and inflammation.
I do hope that you have found something helpful and I will be glad to answer any further query.
