    A common problem that many athletes face are shin splints. They are painful and are mainly caused due to continued impact and trauma to the connective tissue around the tibia. There ways to treat shin splints, but how about a way to reduce the pain and alleviate shin splints all together? That is where Zensah helps athletes! The Zensah compression leg sleeves has multiple specialty design features that not only help reduce the pain caused by shin splints but also prevent shin splints from occurring in the first place.

    An important part of the shin splint sleeve design is the seamless technology. This technology produces a compression sleeve that has no seams, lessening the irritation on an athlete's skin and improving overall comfort of the leg sleeve. Focusing now on the relief and prevention of shin splints, the graduated compression and pin-point compression technology take the forefront. The graduated compression on the compression calf / shin sleeve provides a greater amount of compression on the ankle while lessening as it reaches the upper calf area. This technology helps increase the circulation. It also helps get the deoxygenized blood to the heart quickly and allowing for speeder return of oxygen filled blood back to the active area. The circulation benefits help to lessen the pain an athlete can experience while running. The pin-point compression that is a major feature of the calf / shin sleeve is demonstrated and accomplished with the raised ribbing along the entire shin area that wraps around to cover the calf sleeve. The proper placement of compression along the shin targets specific areas to alleviate the cause areas of shin splints during athletic activity.

    Now what if you are an athlete currently experiencing shin splints and require recovery, Zensah can give you a leg up there as well! Wearing the compression shin sleeve post-workout still gives the targeted area the benefits of the graduated compression and pin-point technology. The sleeves promotes faster recovery by aiding in the removal of blood lactate. This creates a larger lactate threshold which is proven to not only speed up recovery time, but also increase performance once healed!  Earlier the cause of shin splints was explained; the compression technology in the sleeve helps recovery and causation by minimizing microtrauma to the muscles and reducing the amount of vibration on repeated ground contact.

    Still not convinced of the amazing benefits the Zensah Calf / Shin Splint Compression Sleeve provides to athletes, listen to a couple expert sources:

    "The Zensah leg sleeve is the only calf sleeve that incorporates pin point compression to the calf area." - Jeff Galloway

    "My lower legs held up well during my runs with very little pain afterwards. The biggest plus came the next day. I had almost no stiffness in my calf and was able to go back to 5 mile runs, a first in weeks..." - Joe Runner Blog

    "They surpassed my expectations in every way. I ran this morning and hours later I feel as fresh as if I hadn't run at all. I put the Zensah Compression Leg Sleeves on right after I'm done running and wear them for the rest of the day. My shin pains are gone. My calves are ready to run much more quickly than before. It reduced recovery time dramatically." - Rich Griffith

    It is clear, the Zensah Calf / Shin Splint Compression Sleeve not only helps athletes recover from shin splints but alleviate the pain from happening in the first place! These sleeves are created first for function, but with all the creative color choices available fashion is not far behind. Run longer, Heal faster, Run with Zensah!
