ANTERIOR TIBIALIS STRETCHES FOR SHIN SPLINTS
Here are some simple video static & dynamic stretching examples to learn how to stretch the Anterior Tibialis, which is the muscle that runs along the shin bone.
If you love running, hiking or speed walking, try to spend some time to stretch the anterior tibialis after you exercise, as an overly tighten anterior tibialis can easily cause shin splints.
To stretch the anterior tibialis, we recommend you to try some Dynamic Stretches at the beginning of your workouts and learn how to use a foam roller after you have exercised.
Dynamic stretches are active movements which help to warm up your joints safely, activate and loosen up your back muscles, improving flexibility and preventing injury. Foam rolling is great to self-massage areas of the body which are a bit more difficult to stretch effectively. Therefore that’s why we do recommend to use a foam roller on the anterior tibialis to effectively prevent shin splints.
