posterior shin splints just does not go away

I've tried- stretching, massage, spa, msm supp, foam roller, glucosamine supp, and taking 1 week break from running/jumping.  Now after 2 days of activity, it is back.

Look up the causes of shin splints. See if you have any muscle imbalances, then correct lagging body parts. Perhaps it's caused by certain muscles being tight? Stretch those ones. Or maybe it's caused by a few overractive muscles? Foam roll them.

shins are anterior?

edit: never thought about that type as posterior, more medial i guess, but apparently "posterior shin splints" is the normal term for them. http://www.coolrunning.com/engine/2/2_5/196.shtml.

touche, mr. dunk1. touche.

turmeric, MSM.

go to an indian store and get turmeric root, it's less bitter than the powder. WIth powder mix some in hot water, or even simmer for a few min.

MSM has worked great for my knees but I don't think it necesarily helps with shin splits. It works well for joints because joits have a high amount of sulfates (highly anionic compounds), and the MSM suppl,ements that qute directly.
TUrmeric is a great anti-inflammatory. Ibuprofen is a piece of shit.

"Performance during stretch-shortening cycle exercise is influenced by the visco-elastic properties of the muscle-tendon units. During stretching of an activated muscle, mechanical energy is absorbed in the tendon structures (tendon and aponeurosis) and this energy can subsequently be re-utilized if shortening of the muscle immediately follows the stretching. According to Biscotti (2000), 72% of the elastic energy restitution action comes from tendons, 28% - from contractile elements of muscles.

why not just take the tumeric pills in the bottle?

YEs, this is most likely from muscle imbalance.  So folks, shin splints could be from muscle imbalance.  How to treat muscle imbalance psoterior shin splints? 

By doing calf raises with the outer part of your foot the same motion as when one sprains their ankle by stepping on someone's foot in basketball.

So for more resistance, go on a seated calf raise machine, and start raising your calfs with the side of your foot rather than balls of your feet.  Or if you don't need that much reistance, just do regular standing raises with the outer part of your feet.

now my shin splints are fuinally gone.
