Shin Splint Blaster II
For Teenage Athletes Transitioning from Winter to Spring Sports
Teen athletes are at a risk of shin splints during the transition of winter to spring time sports. After a full winter of skiing, tendons of the lower leg are stressed when athletes get into running too quickly.
Shin splints are a painful and debilitating condition that can hamper the season. When not recognized and treated, it can progress to medial tibial stress syndrome and eventually to stress fracture, which means the end of the season and rest for several months.
To keep our high school athletes up and running (no pun intended), Runners’ Edge has designed a small group class specifically for teenage athletes to improve sports-specific strength, performance, and prevent shin splints!
We will meet 1x/week for 6 weeks. Each week’s class will have a specific and unique focus that builds upon the week before for safe and effective progression. Class size is limited to 10-participants to allow individualized one-on-one attention from our specialist.
Most importantly, this class is designed to be FUN! Sign up as an individual and meet others who share your passion for track and field, or ask a teammate to join you!

All 6- sessions are taught and designed by Runners’ Edge’s Clinical Director, Zuzana Rogers, PT, ScD, SCS, COMT– A running specialist physical therapist with 16 years of experience working with elite athletes!
