Don't let injuries stop you from running

How do socks help with shin splints?

  • Shin splints is the most common injury among runners, a collective term for all kinds of tibia disorders. Do you suffer from shin splints? Then you are certainly not alone. Over 30% of the runners can suffer from shin splints at some point.

  • You get shin splints from overloading your leg muscles, tendons or shin bone. Shin splints happen from overuse with too much activity or an increase in training. Most often, the activity is high impact and repetitive exercise of your lower legs. This is why runners, dancers, and gymnasts often get shin splints

  • STOX Energy Socks are compression socks. This means the socks are (comfortably) tight around your feet or legs. Compression socks are known for providing support and stability to decrease the strain in the muscles and bones of your lower leg. That means while compression socks won’t magically heal your shin splints overnight, they'll give you much-needed relief.
