AND HOW COMPRESSION CAN HELP
WHY YOU NEED ATHLETIC COMPRESSION
Pain From Shin Splints
Shin Splints refer to pain along the shin bone or tibia and are very common among athletes, military members, and dancers. Typically, they occur when an athlete has increased the intensity of their workout and overworks their muscles. The overwork coupled with repetitive stress to the connective tissues along the tibia can lead to painful shin splints. Often shin splints are also accompanied by light swelling in the lower leg.
HOW WE CAN HELP
Prevention + Relief From Painful Shin Splints
Although shin splints can and will heal without any treatment, they are painful and the healing process is slow. Wearing compression socks can help to relieve the pain while healing and prevent future shin splints. Increased circulation from gradient compression aids in healing, while the snug pressure helps to relieve any inflammation. In addition, the same snug pressure provides support for the muscles and tendons. Paired with good supportive shoes, compression socks can help prevent painful shin splints.
