The Pro-Tec Shin Splint Compression Wrap alleviates pain and discomfort associated with shin splints. Featuring a customizable wrap design allowing the user to adjust the level of compression to best suit your needs.
It provides targeted compression to keep the pressure off of the calf while putting pressure and targeting the muscles in the front of the shin. This will help stabilize the tibia and the surrounding tissue while absorbing stress
to prevent additional damage. The Cool Mac, mesh-covered compression strip gives even more support. This is to be worn over the upper tibia for anterior splints.
The Pro-Tec Shin Splint Compression wrap is designed to reduce symptoms of Medial Tibial Stress Syndrome and Anterior Shin Splints (pain in the front of the shin).
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 Syndrome 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.
