neo calf guards
shin splints for 6 YEARS?? ouch!!
are you sure its not anything worse?
good on you though for perserverence and all that. and good luck on the running!!
well best of luck jane and nothing but admiration from me
glad you have found something that finally helps. i had shin splints btw so i know how much it hurts (couldnt walk right for days let alone run). i stupidly started running on pavement in the wrong trainers (well if you could call them that).

just wanted to say that a very kind lady suggested that i tried these calf guards. i have had shin splints for six years. tried everything. if she is still on here just wanted to thank her. have been using them for about 8 weeks now, am up to six miles again on my long runs and touch wood no issues so far. in my opinion well worth a try :0))
Good to see a success story after such a bad time.
When you say "these" calf guards... is it a specific type? Is there a particular reason why you think they've worked?
It just could be useful for others. Personally, I flirted with very minor shin splints a couple of months ago, so if they come back and get worse, I might need this info myself one day!
