In brief: Shin splints

First make sure that your lower leg pain is not really a stress fracture of the tibia bone.
Treatment of medial tibia stress syndrome involves icing up to three times a day, taking some antiinflammatory medication, reducing impact activities, get shock absorbing insoles, reduce your miles running and increase them gradually.
