In brief: Avoid the activity
When shin splints occur, it is important to avoid the activity to allow them to heal.
Then warm up, stretch and start gradually with activity. I pain recurs, be checked out for stress fractures.

In brief: Mainly rest
Ice to affected areas, advil or aleve, (naproxen) and initially rest.
Typically gets better with regular activity though. Good luck.
