What do you put for your shin splints because nothing ever seems to work for me!


I just got taped - there was a booth at the 5k.

I suck at running. Usually, NOT running at all prevents shin splints. Second to not running, I run on soft surfaces. I try to avoid concrete and asphalt by running on dirt trails or grass.

I thought this kinesiology tape was BS, but surprisingly, it feels really good! The guy was explaining that the tape lifts the skin away from the lymphatic tissue to increase circulation to the affected area. So far, so good. I love it so much I bought some!

Now I’m going to go ice it for 20 minutes. And that’s about it, cuz ain’t nobody got time for icing.

Was this helpful? I hope so!

Thanks for the ask!!!
