Have you ever been on a run and wondered 🤔…


Why does the front of my leg hurt when I run?


Were you thinking to yourself 💭 [should I run through shin pain?]…


This can be common for new runners just starting out or can occur in experienced runners who are really stepping up their training with heavy duty mileage or adding in lots of speedwork.


Brodie Sharpe is a physiotherapist with The Breakthrough Running Clinic and shares the answers to these common questions as well as breaks down the the causes, treatment, recovery, and prevention of shin splints so you can finally get rid of them once and for all!.


These are the questions Brodie addresses during the interview:

2. What causes shin splints to occur?


3. If I was a runner who had shin splints, should I run through shin pain?


4. How do we fix shin splints? What is the best treatment or how do I get back to running with shin splints?


5. How can we prevent shin pain from coming back?
