Thanks Sarah The pain feels more like a bruise like sensation to the muscle on the outside of the main shin bone The bone does not hurt at all and no pain when resting Can feel pain when I stretch it by keeping heel on floor and lift the front of foot up. Can also feel pain when pushing my thumb into the muscle about half way between knee and ankle
Hi Sarah, I've been running on roads up to half marathon distance for the last few years with no injuries Tried a treadmill 3 weeks ago and ever sinse I've been suffering shin splints in my left leg (outside of shin). rested for 2 weeks and tried again but felt pain after 10 mins. What is the fastest way to get back running? Total rest or are there any exercises/stretches which could help? I have a race in may which I am trying to train for.
