Commonly Asked Questions

What are "shin splints"?

The term "shin splints" refers to Medial Tibial Stress Syndrome, an injury of the lower leg resulting from stress reactions of the tibia and surrounding muscles. It tends to occur when you increase your volume suddenly. Clinically, symptoms are often described as a "vague, diffuse pain on the distal third of the medial tibial border that arises from exertion."

So, what does that mean for you? If you feel pain along the inside border of your shin bone, particularly along the furthermost third away from your knee, you may have shin splints! We recommend you consult a physician or clinician to confirm your diagnosis. 

How does the Solushin work?

The Solushin combines two approaches to treating shin splints:
1. Compress the site of inflammation and pain
 2. Release tension in the calf muscles

Within the sleeve, the wearer will find a compressive component that is applied to the site of pain. The straps compress this down. Participants in the clinical trial and users of the Solushin noted immediate reductions in pain thanks to this component.Three parts compress the origin sites of your soleus muscle (in your calf). By targeting these areas of tension, the Solushin effectively reduces tension throughout the whole muscle belly. 

When do I wear it?

The Solushin was designed to be worn before or after running. Alternatively, it can be worn during a low-level activity such as walking. Before running enables you to improve your ankle range of motion and reduce tension in your calf muscles before you engage in the exercise while after the activity works better for pain management.

What does it feel like?

The Solushin has been designed to keep the user in control of the pressure. It is made from high quality, medical-grade materials, so it is comfortable to slide on. While wearing it, the user may feel a bit restricted. If you are tender or sore in the spots of pressure, adjust the pressure accordingly.If you have shin splints pain, you should notice a fast reduction in pain while wearing the device. This should continue to subside in your runs over the course of a month until you are running shin pain-free. You should also notice a reduction in tension in your calf muscles with improved range of motion after wearing the device. 

What clinical evidence do you have?

The Solushin was the investigational device in a double-blinded randomised controlled clinical trial in Sydney, Australia. The use of the Solushin resulted in a clinically significant reduction in pain symptoms and an earlier return to full activities that was maintained up to 6 months. This data was presented in the Foot & Ankle Papers at the 2019 Sports Medicine Australia Conference on the Sunshine Coast by Dr William McNamara on behalf of all the authors and is pending publication in a clinical journal.In addition to this study, another was conducted on the Solushin's ability to improve ankle range of motion using the knee-to-wall measure. The Solushin demonstrated an improvement of 21% in an hour of wear while the control group had negligible change.
