Rocktape and ice massage help to reduce pain and inflammation in your shin allowing for your body to recover properly. Cutting down the time until you are able to get back to whatever activity it might be that is causing your shin splints in the first place. For more information on using KT tape and ice massage, check out a break down in a previous blog here. We are going to jump right into the steps to get your shins feeling good.

Cut your first piece of tape to cover the length of your shin from just below the knee to just above the ankle.

While flexing your foot toward your shin place the first piece of tape down with no stretch.

Step 5

Take the cryosphere and slowly roll it in circles over the area you are experiencing pain, occasionally rolling the length of the shin muscle. Do this for about 2-5 minutes until you experience numbness. It should never hurt, but you should feel some slight burning along with some aches.

Repeat Step 5 2-3 times a day until your shin splints subside. It is recommended to still use the crysophere daily even without shin splint pain to help prevent future injuries.
