Product Description

The Shin Splint Compression Wrap's contoured design focuses compression on the soft tissue next to the tibia (where you need it) and keeps pressure off of the calf (where you don't need it). It can also be worn over the upper portion of the tibia to alleviate symptoms of Anterior Shin Splints. Includes Cool Max covered Felt compression strip for additional support.



Features

* Medical Application: Reduces symptoms of Medial Tibial Stress Syndrome and Anterior Shin Splints. * How It Works: The Shin Splint Compression Wrap applies gentle pressure on soft tissue next to the tibia (shin bone), helping prevent additional tearing of the soft tissue away from the tibia. Compression not only reduces additional damage, it alleviates pain and enhances the healing process. In addition, targeted pressure will absorb stress to the tibia. * Design Theory behind Shin Splint Compression Wrap: Medial Tibial Stress Syndrome is the most popular form of shin splints. Because Medial Tibial Stress Sydrome occurs in the lower 1/3rd region of the tibia, it is important to target that region. The Shin Splint Compression Wrap's contoured design focuses compression on the soft tissue next to the tibia (where you need it) and keeps pressure off of the calf (where you don't need it). It can also be worn over the upper portion of the tibia to alleviate symptoms of Anterior Shin Splints. Includes Cool Max covered Felt compression strip for additional support.

Medical Application: Inflammation of the soft tissue on the inside, front portion of the tibia (shin).Medical Application: Inflammation of the soft tissue on the inside, front portion of the tibia (shin).

Causes: Tenderness extending along a vertical distance oMedical Application: Inflammation of the soft tissue on the inside, front portion of the tibia (shin). Although Medial Tibia Stress Syndrome is the most common form of shin splints, Anterior Shin Splints is not uncommon. Anterior Shin Splints cause a vertical line of tenderness along the anterior (front) of the tibia. Medial and Anterior Shin Splints are not to be confused with Anterior Compartment Syndrome or stress fractures. Anterior Compartment Syndrome is muscle swelling which applies abnormal pressure to the compartment containing that muscle. Tenderness and pain are felt at the upper, lateral side of the tibia.



A stress fracture is a crack or break to the tibia bone. This may result in tenderness of the tibia, but this pain tends to occur in a horizontal line as opposed to shin splint symptoms, in which the pain line is vertical. Stress fractures require immediate medical attention!



Recommended Treatment: R.I.C.E. - Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation. Reduce activity to promote healing. Avoid downhill and hard surface running. Apply Ice for 10-15 minutes after each workout to reduce inflammation and pain. (If any skin irritation or adverse reaction occurs due to icing, see your medical doctor). Seek professional advice in stretching (Calf) the calf muscles and the hamstrings. Investigate new shoes, orthotics, or heel lifts that may help eliminate pronation problems. Replace insoles and shoes atleast everly six months. As with any orthopedic injury, a consultation with a sports medicine professional is recommended.
