You will be able to run longer, run father, and take your running to the next level. A Calf Sleeve is ideal for reducing the risk of shin splints and calf tear.

Shin Splints

Shin splints are defined as inflammation of the lower part of the anterior muscle on the lower leg where the muscle attaches to the bone. When you run, you put a lot of stress on your shin. When you strike the ground with your feet, the impact causes irritation of the muscles on the sin. In the medical world, shin splints are more commonly known as Tibial Stress Syndrome.  If shin splints go untreated, you risk long-term damage of the connective muscle including micro-tears.
