Hi guys i play football and suffer from shin splints most years. i have them now but i cannot rest them to get rid of them, so what i need is help on what to do to minimise pain and get me through matches.
Here's what i do:
After training i ice them for 2 days.
Before training/matches is massage them with deep heat rub.
I have good orthotic insoles and moulded boots.
I tape them up pretty tight before running.
I am going to buy ibprofine on monday as i'm out, its an anti inflamitary.
I will try get a good painkiller to take prematch.
Also a mate recommended Difene before match games but thats a prescription drug i think, i'll have to ask.
Am i doing all i can do? Any advise?
