    How well do the shin wraps help? I get splints 10-15 mins into my run. Its really frustrating....me thinks it may have to do with some knee tendinitis I get every now n then.

    could be incorrect shoes
    could be running style
    could be a stretching issue

    I recently had a shin splint problem from playing indoor soccer and it was a stretching problem for me, hasn't bothered me since

    I have it too, switched to some decent running shoes and it helped some and I started stretching better, which helped a little more. I still get them though but not as bad, so the problem has not been pinpointed yet >.<

    mike actually mentioned that arginine supplementation can lead/exaggerate shin splints also, if you are using anything like that
