SHIN SPLINTS AND CALF PAIN

COMMON CAUSES

Although not fully known by the medical community the theory is that Shin Splints are causes by over working the calf muscles too quickly after a break from activity. The weak Anterior(front) muscles in the shin are typical the root of cause shin splints. Things to avoid:

1. Overextending your training after a long break
2. Sprinting on hard surfaces for long periods of time
3. Wear old worn out running shoes
4. Not warming up or stretching the anterior (front) muscles of the shin

REHAB FOR SHIN SPLINTS

We have all heard the term R.I.C.E: Rest, Ice, Compress, Elevate. Notice that compression is a key component in injury rehab and prevention. What better way to keep your body in top condition than to always provide compression during and after your sport? Make sure you stretch and strengthen your legs to fully cure shin splints.

WHAT CAN COMPRESSION DO?

* Reduce muscle vibration and micro trauma to muscle tissues
* Holds any ligaments and joint in line for improved efficiency
* Bring more oxygen and nutrients to your shin and calf muscles
* Flushes out lactic acid and waste in the blood stream
* Keep out swelling in any joint
* Help increase joint stability
