The Platinum™ magnetic thermal reactive (MTR) Calf & Shin Sleeve relieves discomfort from lower leg spasms, calf cramps, and shin splints. It also helps condition calf muscles in a way very similar to stretching before exercising. We recommend wearing it to help speed healing of shin splints and muscle tears, and to prevent further injury while exercising, walking, running, or playing sports like basketball and soccer.
Muscle spasms can come on suddenly, and painfully. The primary cause of spasm (and charley horses) is poor oxygen supply to muscle tissue. By relaxing and dilating capillary blood vessels, magnetic therapy improves blood flow. This leads to more effective transport of oxygen to muscle cells, to reduce spasm.
* Relief for calf cramps, muscle spasm, shin splints and lower leg pain
* Reduce swelling to ease shin splint pain
* Improve blood flow and oxygenation to muscles
* Speed healing of muscle tears and injury
* Relax muscles with ReActive™ therapeutic warmth without overheating
* Soft skin comfort & compression support
How Magnetic Therapy Works
Nutrients, like calcium ions, are also carried more efficiently. Calcium ions are integral for controlling and signaling muscle contraction. Better absorption into muscle tissue provides a second, important means of reducing muscle spasms.
For shin splints and muscle injuries, improved blood flow works like a two-way street, also resulting in faster removal of toxins and swelling. This helps to reduce pain and soreness from shin splints and muscle injuries. Reducing swelling faster allows the healing process to begin sooner. Oxygen and nutrient supply is equally important here, as it provides the cellular fuel and building blocks to heal muscle tissue and bone.
The MTR calf & shin sleeve uses focused, high-energy magnetic fields and therapeutic heat to relax muscles and increase blood flow. Made with our exclusive ReActive™ hybrid neoprene support fabric, the sleeve provides excellent compression, soft skin comfort, and just the right amount of warmth - without overheating.
Whether you're sitting or running a marathon, ReActive™ support fabric precisely controls the amount of therapeutic body heat, and removes perspiration in response to your level of activity. Unlike standard neoprene supports, you can wear the Therion MTR calf sleeve as long as necessary to achieve the best results - and it will always feel comfortable.
Therion's calf & shin sleeve contains a total of 12 magnets, using both 4,300 gauss ceramic magnets and 13,500 gauss neodymium magnets. Each magnet is ¾" diameter x ¼" thick. These larger, thicker magnets store more magnetic energy so the magnetic fields are stronger and can completely penetrate through muscle tissue and bone for maximum results. The support can be turned so the magnets face the back or front of your leg, specifically targeting the calf or shin.
