Real Time Anterior Tibialis Stretch to Relieve Shin Splints & Lower Leg Pain

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.

When your quads are tight, they can cause knee stiffness and pain. This stretch can help relieve knee and thigh pain and soreness. It’s also a great stretch to keep your legs moving through out the day if you sit for long periods.

The quadriceps femoris muscle, or the quads are a large muscle group that helps straighten or extend the knee.
