As a former soccer player, I know firsthand just how awful shin splints can be. The dull ache at the front of my shin made me feel like I was walking on glass shards. 😭

And don’t even get me started on how clueless I was about stretching the front of my shin. Little me had no idea that was even a thing!

So instead, I spent countless hours icing my shins, crossing my fingers, and hoping the pain would magically disappear.

But the truth is, whether you’re a seasoned athlete or just someone who likes to stay active, shin splints are a common and incredibly frustrating issue.

So if you’re currently dealing with the agony of shin splints or just want to avoid it in the future, you’re in the right place!
