Our expert says:
With a history of recurring shin splints it is best to have a biomechanical assessment of the lower limb. Shin splints are often caused by over pronation or arch collapse. I suggest you see a podiatrist with an interest in running injuries. He or she should be able to give you advice on the correct shoes and possibly a corrective insole.
