In brief: Reverse the cause
Acute shin splints can be overcome in 1-2 weeks or chronic shin splints may last years.
The key is to discover the underlying causes and reverse them. Overtraining, poor footwear, poor running mechanics, weak lower extremity musculature are common causes. Don't let your symptoms linger too long before reaching out for help.
