The anterior tibialis muscle is involved with anterior shin splints and can be very painful when it is irritated. This anterior tibialis stretch can help you prevent and recover from shin splints and other lower leg pain.
The anterior tibialis muscle sits just on the outer portion of your tibia (shin bone). The muscle helps dorsiflex and invert the foot. People often have shin splints from running/walking on hard surfaces, not having the right shoes, or even bad body mechanics.
