In brief: Rest

Rest and activity modification are the mainstay of treatment.
When the pain wears down gradually increase exercise intensity in a pain free fashion.

In brief: Ice nsaids

The pain from shinsplints is moderate in general the best way to relieve it is a combination of ice massage, rest and nsaids i would also wear well cushioned shoes to avoid the everyday pounding on the affected area.
