The Pro-Tec™ Shin Splint Compression Wrap alleviates the pain and discomfort associated with shin splints. 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. The Cool Max covered felt compression strip provides additional support and comfort. Hook and loop tabs allow you to customize your fit for the most targeted compression specific to your body and its needs.
Medial Tibial Stress Syndrome is the most abundant 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.
