YouTube: The most common cause of shin splints is overload on the front of the tibia (shin bone), which inflames the connective tissues that attach the lower leg muscles to the bone. Taping is relatively simple, but being shown is much easier than describing it. www.youtube.com/watch?v=1zrb3ouzxe0.
