Wear before or after training
PAIN MANAGEMENT WITH TARGETED COMPRESSION
Wear the solushin before or after training (this is your preference) for 30 mins to 2 hours. The device applies our patented counter traction technology to the soleus (calf) muscle causing it to release tension. It also applies focal compression to the site of pain to help address any inflammation.
Put simply: the massage produced by the nodes in the device will reduce muscle tension in your calf to help with pain management.
LOAD MANAGEMENT PLAN
If paired with a load management program (we provide a program with any purchase of the device) you can expect to return to pain free running ~5 times faster.
This saves an average of $1100 for an athlete seeking physiotherapy or podiatry over a usual course of treatment.
HOW TIGHT SHOULD THE SLEEVE BE?
The sleeve is to aid in the placement of the nodes and eliminate skin contact. The sleeve should not feel like a compression sleeve, it should feel like a pair of sports leggings. If it is loose in areas, this is not a problem, as long as the straps are tightened correctly.
HOW TIGHT SHOULD THE STRAPS BE?
When tightening the device, it should feel like someone is pressing a thumb into your muscle where the rubber nodes are located. If you get pins and needles, loosen the device for more comfort.
HOW DO I KNOW I HAVE SHIN SPLINTS?
Please see this blog to help distinguish between different shin splints (MTSS).

1. THE SITE OF PAIN
A compressive rod targets the site of pain and inflammation. This is referred to as the distal third of your postero-medial tibial border.
2. SOLEUS MUSCLE - top
A rubber diamond targets the first of three areas of tension in your soleus muscle. This is referred to the lateral origin of the soleus muscle posterior to the head of the fibula.
3. SOLEUS MUSCLE - middle
A rubber diamond targets the second of three areas of tension in your soleus muscle. This is referred to as the origin of the soleus muscle at the mid-diaphysis of the tibia (shin bone).
4. SOLEUS MUSCLE -bottom
A rubber diamond targets the third of three areas of tension in your soleus muscle. This is referred to as the musculotendinous junction of the soleus muscle and Achilles tendon.
