I have shin splints on lower outside of left leg. I did a 5 hour ride and it was ok till the last hour when it started to ache some but no sharp pain. I have had massage and it is tender. I have swam and it feels like a sore muscle.So is it ok to bike or run if the pain is only a ache like when you get a deep tissue massage? Also how long did you miss running and biking if you have had shin splints?

my shin splints were always short lived, temporary injuries that have never put me down more than a week or 3.  For my personal shin splint problems, I've found that KT Tape (or Rock Tape) worked wonders.  Compression socks may also help.

 

YMMV

I agree, K tape works wonders. The best thing I have found is a strong stretching regimen and ibuprofen when it gets sore. Simply sit on your heels, straightening your foot and toes... I try to hold it 60 seconds twice a day. It turns out to be a really nice quad stretch as well. I've had my share of shin splints but I've never lost training time because of them.

Rolling the muscles on the outside of your shin bone on a foam roller (or with "The Stick") will help, too.

I've rested them for 6 weeks, twice. I've had Active Release Therapy, massages, I'm doing Trigger Point, and stretching. Yet, I'm still having issues and can't get above 3 miles.

I started having trouble a couple months ago with a tightness and almost numbness in my anterior left leg and top of foot during running. It feels sort of dead.
