How to treat for shin splints on both legs
« on: June 14, 2014, 05:20:24 PM »
My daughter, 15, has had really bad shin splints in basketball.  She has sat out 6 weeks and trying to work back into it.  It is still painful after a while of playing.  We have not yet tried the BFST treatments yet.  What do you recommend for treatment.  Thanks

Hi sclyon,

Shin Splints are caused by excessive stress on the connective muscle tissue surrounding the tibia and are even more likely to occur if your daughter has a tight calf muscle. The BFST will both loosen up tight muscles through the added blood flow as well as heal any damaged tissue which resulted from the stress. The BFST continues to encourage greater blood flow for up to 4 hours after the recommended 20 minute treatment. I would suggest that until she can run and jump pain free that she should be using the BFST several times a day; For the best results we recommend 3-5 treatments a day, ideally 1 every 4 hours ensuring a steady, constant increase in blood flow. As a treatment will also loosen up the muscles, and other soft tissues, the BFST acts as a great preventative if used before she plays basketball, goes for a run or long walk or anything else that would be strenuous to her legs.

I would also recommend looking at the ColdCure product. The ColdCure relieves the symptoms of an injury; it will reduce the inflammation, allowing for greater circulation and also relieving pain attributed to that inflammation. The ColdCure is designed to be used for, commonly, a couple of days before using the BFST to make sure that all of the circulation-constricting inflammation has subsided and that the new increased blood flow from the BFST can circulate unimpeded. The ColdCure quickly achieves this with both cold therapy and compression therapy. Should she re-aggravate the injury she will want to take a brief break from the BFST and go back to using the ColdCure until once again the symptoms have been relieved.

If you have any questions please don't hesitate in asking. We would love to hear how the products benefit her and how her basketball season goes!
