Walking Newbie = Shin Splints

Comments (0)

Sometimes as a walking newbie you can experience shin pain, a tight or burning sensation on the front of the lower leg, from overusing weak muscles.

In order to reduce this pain or eliminate it from happening, complete these exercises 4 times through:

  • stand on tiptoes; hold for 3 seconds
  • roll both feet onto their outside edges; hold for 3 seconds
  • lift your toes as high as you can and stand on heels; hold for 3 seconds
  • stand normally with flat feet; hold for 3 seconds
