Whether you’re pushing toward your next fitness goal or are a nurse constantly on the go to care for your patients, shin splints are the last thing you need. Pain and inflammation only slow you down and make it harder to live your best life. The solution: Nurse Yard's compression socks for shin splints.

Shin splints usually happen because the muscles and tendons around the shinbone are overworked from the pressure and impact of standing, walking, or exercising for long periods. Compression socks provide support during these activities to help improve your circulation, alleviate pain, and reduce inflammation. 

Check out Nurse Yard's stylish and affordable selections today to learn how compression socks help with shin splints.

How Are Nurse Yard’s Compression Socks Different?

While other compression socks only offer compression, Nurse Yard’s socks are made with all of your needs in mind. We understand professionals on the go need more than one avenue of support—you need a total comfort system that lasts all day and beyond. 

That’s how we created Nurse Yard’s design hack—a comprehensive sock design tailored to your needs. We began with a unique wave-knit pattern to provide graduated pressure from ankle to knee, ending in a no-slip cuff so they stay put. Next, we added arch support and cushion around the ankles to protect your instep and joints. Last, we added a little more room in the toes to prevent chafing and allow your feet to breathe. 

With Nurse Yard, you get more than a pair of socks—you get total support relief from shin splints.

Compression Details

20-30 mmHg of graduated pressure. The perfect balance of compression... Not too tight, yet not loose! The ideal amount of support.

Fabric & Care

Our socks are made of 80% Nylon + 20% Spandex. Recommended to air dry to prevent shrinkage and for a longer lasting sock. Wash cold. No fabric softener.

Compression Sock FAQ

What causes shin splints?

Shin splints are microtears in the bone and muscle along the shinbone that cause intermittent, chronic pain in your legs. 

You can shin splints from the following:

  • Intense exercise or playing too hard during sports
  • Repetitive activity (e.g., walking on concrete floors every day)
  • A sudden increase in the intensity or duration of activity
  • Improper footwear for flat feet or high arches

With the right care and rest, shin splints are manageable and will heal over time. 

Do compression socks help with shin splints?

Compression socks are recommended to prevent shin splints, heal existing shin splints, and prevent them from returning. If you exercise frequently, play a sport, or have to be on your feet for work, wearing compression socks can stop you from getting shin splints in the first place. 

If you already have shin splints, compression socks can help them heal by improving blood flow and fluid drainage in the area. This process alleviates pain, speeds recovery, relieves inflammation, and reduces muscle fatigue.

Do compression socks improve performance?

Yes—compression socks can improve physical performance because they help heal shin splints and prevent them from returning. Compression socks for shin splints—like those at Nurse Yard—have a cushioned ankle and graduated compression to improve circulation. This increases blood flow to the injured areas so they heal faster. Compression also reduces inflammation and pain. 

Additionally, compression socks reduce muscle fatigue and soreness while supporting your connective tissues, so you can be active for longer with less risk of developing shin splints.

How does Nurse Yard’s design hack for compression socks differ?

Nurse Yard created our patented design hack with your convenience and comfort in mind. We understand what it’s like to be on your feet all day, so our shin splints compression socks have features focused on protecting your feet, legs, and joints. 

These features include: 

  • Roomy, breathable toes to prevent chafing
  • Comforting arch support
  • Cushioned ankles
  • Wave-knit design for graduated compression
  • No-slip knitted cuff to keep your socks in place

How do I find my compression sock size?

To determine which Nurse Yard compression socks are best for you and your shin splints, you’ll need our sizing guide, a flexible measuring tape, and your usual shoe size. 

Wrap the measuring tape around the widest part of your calf, making sure it’s snug but doesn’t dig into your skin. Pair that number with your shoe size to see where you fall on the sizing chart. 

For instance, if you wear a women’s size 8 shoe and your calf measures 13 inches in circumference, our women’s L/XL sock will fit you best. If you’re between sizes, please note that our socks have more room in the foot, so you’ll want to choose the size that fits your foot better.

What colors & sizes are available in Nurse Yard’s compression socks?

We offer our compression socks in men’s and women’s sizes from S/M to XXXL in a wide variety of colors and styles. 

Our CORE series compression socks are always available and come in the following colors:

  • Black: gray and silver design
  • White: gray and silver design
  • Blue: gray design with white toe and heel
  • Green: gray design
  • Orange: gray design with a black toe and heel

We’re also currently offering our HERO sock collection for those dedicated to science and medicine: 

  • Scrub Life: white with blue details and teal scrubs print
  • DNA: yellow with multicolored DNA strand print
  • Ambulance: teal with white ambulance print, orange toe, and heel

All styles are available in every size.

How tight are Nurse Yard’s compression socks?

Our compression socks for shin splints offer graduated pressure, starting with 30mmHg of firm compression at the ankle, 25mmHg around the calf, and 20mmHg of moderate compression just below the knee. 

They’re tight enough to improve circulation and stay in place but not so tight that they’re uncomfortable. In fact, they’re comfortable enough to wear all day!

Where does Nurse Yard ship from?

All compression socks are shipped from our facility in Phoenix, AX, using USPS.

How long will Nurse Yard shipping take?

Nurse Yard shipping takes an average of 3 to 5 business days, depending on where you’re located in relation to our offices in Phoenix, AZ. 

Please note that shipping delays due to current events could delay shipping times, placing them anywhere from 5 to 11 business days. We thank you in advance for your patience and understanding.

Your customer service is wonderful. Needed a larger size and you shipped them right away. I have the black and Grey core socks. The Grey pattern looks and feels like k tape. All the patterns provide the perfect support. Really like the band at the knee. Actually had room for the lymph to move up to the torso. Best of all worlds. Will absolutely get more. Thanks Paula

Such a relief to find this product.

Several years ago I had an infection that started in my right leg. It initially looked like a bug bite but then began to throb and have electric like shocks. After seeking medical attention and received some good and bad advice on remedying this issue it had gotten worse and after receiving a biopsy on my left leg that also become infected, I ended in up wound care at our local hospital. There I was told even when I recovered from the infection I would need to wear compression stockings for the rest of my life. Fast-forward after trying several companies I had some success but most compression socks I tried would be tight but didn't relieve the swelling at times or the pain, until I tried Nurses Yard. These have been a welcome find and I wear them all the time. My doctor is surprised as he said most people don't listen to him , I told him to recommend Nurses Yard because they really work.

Best fit ever!!

These stockings were recommended by my dental hygienist , She showed me them on her legs at the office. She couldn't say enough about haw comfortable they are. My doctor told me to get compression hose because my legs swell. I've tried many only to return them because I have a large leg and I felt like they were squeezing me too hard. Then I tried Nurse Guard which are just wonderful ! I had little bit of a hard time getting them on, but once on I didn't notice any discomfort and wore them all day.

Thank you for your positive review of our Nurse Yard CORE Compression Socks! We're so glad to hear that they are the best fit ever for you.
