Known as tibial stress syndrome, shin splints cause dull aches and pains in the front side of the lower leg. Swollen and irritated muscles, stress fractures, or over pronation may also be the underlying problems causing your shin splints. They can also be caused by overworking the legs. Shin splints are very common, and are the cause of about 13% of all running injuries. While shin splints are capable of healing on their own, it often takes an extended period of time, and can disrupt runner’s race training. Zensah’s Calf / Shin Splint Compression Sleeves help speed up the recovery process to get runners back on track as soon as possible.
For faster recovery of shin splints from running, apply ice for 20-30 minutes every few hours. This should continue for two to three days or until the pain is alleviated. Anti-inflammatory pain killers also help reduce pains and swelling, but are only a temporary solution, and can often have additional side effects. Arch supports on shoes can help prevent and reduce shin splints for those who over pronate, or runners can get complete arch support from Zensah’s Compression Socks for running. Some range of motion exercises can also help. Wearing Zensah’s Calf / Shin Splint Compression Sleeves while recovering from shin splints will help speed up the process and provide definite relief to those aches and pains.
Shin splints can be prevented by being consistent with the surface you run on, or by wearing supportive clothing such as Zensah’s Calf Sleeves, that will keep the muscles warm and supported through hard training.
