Will calf compression guards help with shin splints?

Whilst compression guards may help to reduce the local inflammation caused by shin splints they won’t help to address the root cause of the problem. Shin splints are often caused as a result of the tendons in the foot not being strong enough to control the foot on landing. The best thing to do would be to see a qualified physio who can assess you further and would be able to provide appropriate advice on rehab exercises and footwear choices.
