While walking and running make for a great cardio workout, they can be torture on your shins. The straining and over-stretching of your muscles on the periosteum bone can actually cause painful shin splints. Repetitive pounding on hard surfaces can cause the symptoms of shin splints to flare up.*
Proper footwear, stretching and soft surfaces can save you from shin splints. If you try all three and still are experiencing pain, ask your foot doctor for help. Custom orthotics can keep you exercising without shin splint pain.
