Shin splints are caused by repeated stress and impact on the shinbone and connective tissues, which cause pain and swelling in the area. Often, they heal on their own with proper rest and recovery. The Shin Splint Gel Packs are a great way to minimize pain and swelling, helping to reduce time spent off your feet. They can be heated or frozen based on your needs.
Specifically designed to strap to your lower legs to deliver instant pain relief on the go. Cold therapy is highly beneficial in reducing swelling when used immediately after training or a sudden injury. Icing controls inflammation by constricting the blood vessels to restrict blood flow, while heat relaxes tense muscles by dilating vessels. Switching between the two methods can promote even deeper muscle relaxation and faster recovery!
Limit any hot or cold compresses to 15-20 minutes as recommended by professionals. Use a towel or clothing barrier to protect against frostbite and burns.
