How do I get rid of shin splints fast? And what's the medical term name for shin splints?

Unlikely. Shin splints are also called medial tibial stress syndrome (mtss) or tibial periostitis. Unfortunately, there really isn't a proven fast treatment - typically treatment consists of avoiding the aggravating activity and switching to alternate activities, as well as using ice and anti-inflammatory meds. Physical therapy and massage can help. See a physician if symptoms persist.
