E’s Steps to Getting Rid of Shin Splints
Step 1: All right, stop, collaborate, and listen… You’re going to want to… Ice, ice, baby ice!
Step 2: Roll the inside of your shin with a rolling pin. Ya… it’s as weird and painful as it sounds. However, apparently you should try to roll the “knots” out. (Same theory as the foam roller on IT bands.)
I was super skeptical of the “rolling pin on my shin” thing, but it really seems to have worked! However, I’ll add the disclaimer that I googled, “rolling pin and shin splints,” and not everyone thinks it’s a good idea, it’s actually quite controversial.
Ps I also bought new shoes, and got orthopedics
Pss Look at how running-savvy this post is, whoa.
