Lower leg injuries are more common than elbow, shoulder or wrist. A strained/pulled muscle in your calf and the inflammation of the membrane around the tibia (shin splint) are persistent and repetitive.
In many cases the cause is an incomplete or skipped warm-up, but there are also other causes. The shock load caused by fast turning, intense starts and abrupt braking loads the lower legs enormously, even with a good warm-up. Depending on the size of the calf or tibia injury, you will soon be sidelined for three weeks or more. If you want to play tennis, you reduce the risk of injury with Herzog Sport Compression Socks.
“I wear the compression socks during every training and competition. Without the socks I have shin splint complaints quite quickly and my calves turn hard and painful. The load capacity goes up, and physically I can handle a lot more now. I also wear the Herzog socks during long car journeys and on the plane. The socks are really valuable to me.“
