Treat shin splints and calf strains with the help of PhysioRoom

PhysioRoom are proud to help our customers overcome injuries to their calf or shin by providing them with the ideal shin & calf supports for their needs. To help in preventing future injuries to your calf muscle whilst playing sport, take a look at our dedicated selection of calf supports. Or if you are seeking a pair of socks that provide comfortable compression and have a number of benefits to both help prevent injury and speed up recovery, then you need to take a look at our collection of compression socks. At PhysioRoom we understand that shin splints can cause excruciating pain for many athletes. However, you can combat against the pain of shin splints and other shin injuries by purchasing one of our fantastic shin splint supports.

Calf Supports

Our range of Calf Supports are a great way to both prevent future injuries and to aid the recovery of those already suffered. In our range you'll find calf supports that can help with conditions such as: Calf Strains, Shin Splints, Minor Achilles Strains and Compartment syndrome.

Our most popular supports provide dynamic compression and support to the entire calf. The warmth provided by the neoprene support provides therapeutic heating within the tissues by promoting increased local blood flow. This helps to prevent Calf muscle injuries and promote healing where damage has occurred.

Adjustable wrap style calf supports that help provide firm, even support whilst also promoting healing. The adjustable straps to allow for a comfortable, individual fitting compression to the calf and shin region, giving the user re-assurance during activity. The compressive element of the material also stimulates circulation to help reduce the likelihood of cramp and stiffness.

Shin Splints Supports

Our range of Shin Splint Supports are generally neoprene wrap-around shin supports and elasticated shin sleeves. Our shin splint supports provide therapeutic heat and compression to the shin for the prevention and treatment of shin injuries, especially shin splints, as well as calf strains and calf muscle tears. These calf and shin supports cushion and protect the anterior and posterior muscles of the calf to help with pain caused by strains, sprains and shin splints.

Or you could try a fully adjustable wrap style support that helps provide firm, even support and helps promote healing. The compressive element of the material also stimulates blood flow, which can help prevent the build-up of lactic acid both during and following activity. This helps in reducing the prospect of cramp and stiffness whilst also being a valuable recovery and rehabilitation tool for injuries.

Do compression sleeves help shin splints?

Shin splints are often caused by overactivity of the larger and more powerful calf muscles on the posterior aspect of the lower leg. This can cause a muscular imbalance, tension and pain to be felt at the front of the shin. Compression sleeves can help to ease tension in the calf muscles and improve circulation in the lower leg, to reduce inflammation and provide support for both the calf and shin muscles. Ultimately, it is a good idea to seek advice from a Chartered Physiotherapist who can make stretching and strengthening recommendations based on your individual injury.

Can I keep running with shin splints?

Running can often exacerbate the imbalances that can lead to shin splints by overworking the larger, more powerful calf muscles and causing tension around the weaker muscles at the front of the shin. Seeking advice from a Chartered Physiotherapist can be hugely beneficial in order to keep running whilst not making symptoms of shin splints worse. Rest can often allow inflammation and pain to settle but without addressing the root cause it is likely that the problem will return as soon as running is re-commenced. Stretching the calf muscles or using a massage stick or foam roller to ease tension can help improve shin pain.

Ensuring your running shoes are up to date and provide adequate cushioning and support is also important. Many local running shops offer a Gait analysis service where you can receive specialist advice and running shoe fittings. The material used in running shoes to provide cushioning generally lasts for around 500 miles, so renewing your shoes regularly can help prevent injuries, as can avoiding drastic increases in hill work, speed work or change of running surface.

Does taping work for shin splints?

Taping methods can be very effective in reducing painful symptoms of shin splints. Using KT Tape or Zinc Oxide tape can help to support the muscles around the front of the shin that may be overworking or under excessive tension. KT Tape can be effective in reducing swelling and improving circulation to the shin to minimise pain and discomfort. It is often a good idea to use a massage stick or foam roller on the calf muscles behind the lower leg as often an imbalance between these larger muscles and the smaller shin muscles can cause symptoms of shin splints. Ice wraps can also be beneficial in reducing inflammation and pain around the shin. If shin problems persist, seek an assessment from a Chartered Physiotherapist as they will be able to identify weaknesses or biomechanical factors that may be leading to shin pain and make suggestions based on their findings.

How do you prevent lower leg injuries?

Lower leg injuries often result from muscular imbalances that have built up over time. Muscles work in pairs, therefore if one group is overworking (for example the calves) the opposing muscle group (shin) can experience additional strain and tension which can lead to injury. Sometimes foot posture is to blame for these imbalances and insoles may be advisable to help improve the position of the foot and offload the lower limb muscles. Using a massage stick or foam roller to ease tension in the calves can also help improve shin and lower leg pain. Seeking advice from a Chartered Physiotherapist is the ideal way of identifying individual weaknesses or biomechanical issues that can be leading to lower limb injuries.
