Wun Posted January 7, 2010 Report Share Posted January 7, 2010 i used to have the bruising type of shin bang from pressure pointing that left bruises about 1.5cm in diameter on each leg. went to bootfitters, they said that the most likely fix without having to perform surgery on boots was the eliminator tongue shims. it relieved the bruising, all right, but now i have the rubbing shin bang. needless to say, the affected areas sting when in physical contact with anything. as you can see from the picture (goofy, this is the rear left leg. right leg gets the shin bang too but a little bit milder), the pressure is distributed, as hinted by the sock impression (i use the thin kind that goes up to almost the knees). from here, i've thought of buying the thin plastic sheet kind of kitchen cutting boards and cutting some of it and sticking it in the insides of my socks. that, or dropping another 40 bucks on a booster strap, but i'm tight on $$ can i get some outside thoughts? any other ideas? i've seen tiger balm suggested on other threads of rubbing shin bang, but i'd prefer a prevention measure rather than letting the damage happen and having a post-session fix.
