Ive done tonnes of searching on shin bang, boosters, full tilts and such but i think im an odd case and need a bit of advise.
Ive got ace of spades boots. I basically landed two or three small 360s (about 5 foot gap) backseat and shinbang pain came in. I kept skiing till the point that I coudld no longer walk a week later (or ski) and had to come back from my season, doctor says I have shin splints, and Im still having pain 5 weeks on.
So Im thinking I either needs boosters, new boots and of course not to land backseat. But Im not claiming to have been doing anything huge here, I litterally landed backseat on two or three small jumps, and it got so bad I couldnt even put my boots on. I can appreciate not landing backseat but this seems like so much pain for such a small slip up.
Any advise is hugely appreciated. Im going back out to continue my season in 2 weeks, but if this happens again Ill be out so I want to fix it.
Thanks for reading.
lean forward off the lip so u dont land backseat, land switch more, u can esily prevent this.
i use icy-hot cream when skiing if i have shinbang so it doesnt hurt
when popping on skis to get more air off a jump, do you just jump?-Armadaskier1928

Nice one guys, thanks for the advise for the pain.
The pain is getting better now, but fucking hell its taken its time.
It just comes up from such a small, insignificant landing. Like one small slip up, and Im fucked for 4 weeks!
this was my problem my boots were to big. it got so bad i had no choice so i went to the bootfitter and got new dalbello krypton rampages and havent had shinbang since. other then that see what he can do to help and make sure you tighten your boot down really good and stay with your shins pressing hard against the tounge all through take off.

They are pretty tight boots to be honest, but as soon as I get out there I'll have to get something done.
one thing i was told was make sure there is absolutely zero space between the tongue and your shin i used to leave my boots super loose and tightening properly is super important even with proper fitting boots.
