Zensah, the leading compression apparel brand, comments on the recent article by Men’s Fitness discussing the 9 Ways To Avoid Shin Splints. As the article states, “Shin splints—when left untreated—quickly become one of the worst running-related injuries that’ll hinder your workout.”
Shin splints, also known as medial tibial stress syndrome, is a common running injury that causes pain in the leg between the knee and ankle. The Men’s Fitness article reports that athletes can get shin splints by increasing distance, intensity, or even wearing the wrong running shoes. Some key tips to help athletes avoid shin splints include building distance gradually, cross training, and rest.
There are approximately 30 to 40 million runners in the USA. According to Dr. Liebentritt and WebMD, around 35% of runners suffer a running-related injury every year. Of those injured, 13% or 1 to 2 million runners are affected by shin splints. These statistics do not account for soccer, volleyball, lacrosse, gymnastics, cheerleading, tennis and various other athletes, which are all affected by shin splints.
Zensah recognizes the importance in prevention and recovery from shin splints. The Zensah Compression Leg Sleeves have aided countless runners in their prevention and recovery from the common running injury. Zensah designed the compression sleeves to mimic the physiological benefits of athletic tapping methods. The raised micro-ribbing and pin-point compression provides support to the calf and shin, while the graduated compression in the sleeves improve circulation, giving runners an innovative and effective shin splint treatment option.
Parker Robinson, spokesperson for Zensah says, “Running is an incredible sport but it can be very tough on the body. In addition to everything this article recommends, we strongly encourage athletes to incorporate compression sleeves into their training and recovery. We designed the sleeves to help support athletes muscles in the most effective way to help them achieve the best running experience.”
