Shin injuries are bad, this is how they get worse
Shin splints are an overuse condition that won't be helped by shin-pads. The PRO players we spoke to had to go through drastic measures to overcome them. This is not always the case though..
STRESS RELIEF is not just for the mind. Stress fractures that are a form of shin splint condition are treated in some instances by wearing a protective boot. The boot virtually eliminates the foot's impact on the floor, but still allows the sufferer to walk about.
