How to prevent and treat shin splints while running

Shin splints are a common injury among runners and can cause significant discomfort. To prevent shin splints, it's essential to properly warm up before running and gradually increase your mileage. Strengthening exercises for the lower legs and stretching can also help prevent shin splints. If you do experience shin splints, it's important to rest and avoid running until the pain subsides. Icing the affected area, compression, and elevation can also help. Wearing proper running shoes and using proper running form can also help prevent shin splints. If the pain persists, it's important to seek medical attention from a healthcare provider.
