    The list of treatments mentioned in various sources for Shin splints includes the following list. Always seek professional medical advice about any treatment or change in treatment plans.

    • Avoid strenuous exercise - seek treatment as soon as the problem is noticed rather than continuing to exercise through the pain.
    • Treatments of microfractures:
    o Rest - for up to 12 weeks
    o Avoid weight-bearing activity
    • Treatment of periostitis:
    o Rest - for up to 12 weeks
    o Avoid weight-bearing activity
    o NSAIDs
    • Cautery
    • Surgical opening of muscle sheaths
    • Investigation and correction of any exacerbating running styles
    • Support shoes
    • Special exercises
    • Try alternative non-weight bearing activities - a rest period need not be an inactive period; try non-weight bearing exercises such as swimming, cycling or rowing.
