Having suffered with shin splints for the last 4 months despite periods of rest, sports physio, gait analysis, decreased mileage etc I am now trying my own and seems to be successful cure, flight socks.
Now I know this seems mad but I am not completly clutching at straws here. I am a practice nurse and regularly prescribe compression stockings to people for all kinds of veins, aches, swelling etc. Having read lots of articles on compression for shin splints I worked out the mg of mecury conversion in terms of compression that I required and it worked out as the equivelent of 2 flight socks worn on the same leg.
Result at end of week 1 - pain free running and half the price of sports compression socks - bargin.
