    Comments about Pro-Tec Athletics Shin Splint Compression Injury Recovery Wrap:

    This is a great product. I am newer to running and developed shin splints. Did too much too soon - learned my lesson. I had been suffering with them for well over a month. Had been trying EVERYTHING but nothing really helped. I tried using another type of wrap and it just didn't do the job. OK, so I bought a cheaper brand but learned my lesson. This one has padding that you can place over the sore spots and tighten as you need it. I make it tighter during workouts and looser at other times for support.I started using this wrap during workouts and then whenever my legs were hurting. It helps with the pain during running. Its also great for wearing the remainder of the day or whenever I feel pain in my shins. It provides an almost instant relief. I can really feel a difference the next day whenever I have worn this wrap. Its not too bulky and I have been able to wear it under pants to work and nobody noticed.This wrap is so much better than others on the market. I have even used it to hold an ice pack in place over my shins. I will continue to use this during my long runs to provide additional support. I am an overpronator and have a very low arch on one foot and am pretty much flat footed on the other. Yes, I would recommend this wrap to others. Its a bit more expensive than others on the market but it is worth it. [...]

    So far...so good! I ...

    By Gary

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Pro-Tec Athletics Shin Splint Compression Injury Recovery Wrap:

    So far...so good! I usually experience pain from shin splints in both legs a couple of weeks after I begin running frequently, which has hampered my ability to get into a steady routine. When I ordered these(one for each leg) I was beginning to get to the point where I would have to take extensive time off, or greatly limit the frequency of my runs. Well, I'm three runs in after receiving these, and have been virtually pain free! These have been a godsend and I am looking forward to not having to worry about suffering through the pain anymore and not being able to run when I want to. If you have shin splint pain you should definitely buy this product.

    Have gotten shin splints my entire life after running consecutive days - but have not gotten them since using this wrap for the past two weeks. I rarely write reviews but this has really helped my exercise regiment and hope others can also benefit.

        I developed a shin splint that was worsening to the point I visited a sports doc for help. Although he recommended rest & starting back slowly I opted to try this wrap as well. All I can say is that I'm happily impressed. I recently powered walked 16 miles with little to no discomfort which I couldn't have done prior to using this. It definitely worked for me...the price is right...and the quality is good!

              I use the wrap because it really helps my calves when I run. I like it because it is adjustable. On the negative side it seems to wear out after about 5 months and has that horrible rubber smell after about a month. I use them everyday on my 3-6 mile runs.

                  I suffer from severe shin splints. I bought this because I was desperate for relief. This brace doesn't completely get rid of my shin splints but it does give me significant relief from them. I don't run and worry about having to stop because of pain anymore, which is why I would highly recommend this brace.

                  Feels as though I'm running with weights (not necessarily a bad thing). Not only prevents my shin splints from getting worse during a run, but the support manages to make them feel better! Great product, wish I would have invested in these five years ago!

                    This is the 2nd product I've tried for my shin splints (the first being the Zensah compression sleeve). I started running, or trying to, in Nov 11. Did my first race in May 12. Did too much too fast and developed Anterior Shin Splints. I did all the different exercises and stretches...iced, heat, etc etc and nothing would relieve the pain. So I just gave up running. Move forward to two months ago and I decided to try again. I searched and found this and it's AMAZING!! I was able to slowly start back running with very limited pain. There is some there, but not enough to stop me from running. I wish I had found this two years ago when I first started. I would have been able to continue running and training for the 1/2 marathon I wanted to do this October. Now I have to settle for a 5k. But I will get there eventually!!!

                      I have been struggling with shin splints for over 2 years now and I was getting really upset about them. I purchased the product with hopes that it would help with the pain on my shin but in all seriousness I really don't think this product really does anything. If you need a quick pain reliever I would not recommend this product.

                      I have been running since high school with shin splints that won't seem to go away (about 20 years now). Icing wasn't working anymore, and I was just about to give up running and start walking. I bought these last week and ran in them the next morning....OMG, it's like I have new legs. I was running with the dog and he got tired!! lol I felt ABSOLUTELY NO PAIN!!! This is unbelievable...all from just a compression wrap...wow. I only have one complaint, the slip down when I'm running and I need to stop at least once or twice during my run to readjust them. I am thinking about returning these and looking from some that actually slip on. But if I can't find them, I will just readjust and keep on running!!! WOOOOHOOOOOO!!!

                        I am 6'3 280lbs athletic build and I have been running with painful shin splints for quite some time. I have flat feet and I could never get the best combination of sneaker + wrap support. Finally I researched even more in depth and came across "Shin Wraps" to compress shin splints. Yea, of course I was like, "whatever these things are poppin out my leg..". So I bought them after reading some of the other reviews, and I never been more excited to run in my life.

                        PS: yea they get sweaty, but isnt that why we are going to the gym? ;)

                          I recently started a running program, and immediately encountered shin splints. I got some arch supports, which helped some, but I needed more support. I found this wrap and thought it was inexpensive enough so that if it didn't work, I wouldn't be out too much money. I was pleasantly surprised -- it helped immediately! I just put this wrap on before I run and the pain is diminished considerably. If I'm running and feel pain, I just stop and adjust the wrap tighter. I then leave it on for a while after my run. It's a great product!

                              I am training for my first marathon and was suffering from very painful medial shin splints. This wrap allowed me to continue training with a significant reduction in pain. I wear them all day, on every run, and whenever I am planning on being on my feet for prolonged periods.

                                Great product that helps minimize shin splints. I was getting a lot of pain in my shins and I couldn't think of what else to do but to stop running. I would come home from running and soak my legs in an ice bath, but a friend suggested I get this shin compression wrap. That was the best idea ever. After a few times wearing the compression on my shin all the pain has gone away! This has been one the best products yet!

                                Recovery wraps are easy to put on your shins, light weight, do not interfere with one's gait and do what they say they will do - hold the calf muscle to the shin bone eliminating the pain associated with shin splints.

                                I wore this wrap while I ran and it really works to relieve pain. I'd had a shine splint for about 2 weeks before I first used it. It worked better than anything else I've tried. Yesterday, after a month, I ran 7 miles without it and I think my shine splint is healed. I had no pain and I feel good today. I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

                                So far...so good! I usually experience pain from shin splints in both legs a couple of weeks after I begin running frequently, which has hampered my ability to get into a steady routine. When I ordered these(one for each leg) I was beginning to get to the point where I would have to take extensive time off, or greatly limit the frequency of my runs. Well, I'm three runs in after receiving these, and have been virtually pain free! These have been a godsend and I am looking forward to not having to worry about suffering through the pain anymore and not being able to run when I want to. If you have shin splint pain you should definitely buy this product.
