Default Shin Splints?

How do you guys deal with shin splints as in do you wear any type of leg compression sleeves or wear a specific type of insole or shoe?

Thanks

Since you have pes planus in the first place, you are going to be prone to shin splints. If you are in high school, have your ATC tape your arches. Calf raises and stretches for the dorsiflexors for exericse, stay away from things that hurt it for a couple days and/or modify training and playing routine...or use pool exercise for a week or so.

Also, make sure you get plenty of protein and calcium on a daily basis. I had shin splints a few years ago, and when I improved my diet it made a huge difference.

This is good advice. Any Athletic Trainer worth his/her salt will fix you up with anything from low dye tapings to arch supports and to other standard fixings.

But check whatever shoes your using to run around in. Are they designed athletic shoes? If not, for exercise just pop the $25 and get the appropriate shoe.
