Anterior Tibialis Pain

The Anterior Tibialis is where shin splints come from. The Anterior Tibialis job is to lift the front of the foot to clear the ground when running. This action can over work the muscle causing it to inflame. The inflammation compounded by a dropping Talus bone (flat footed), will pull down on the distal end of the Anterior Tibialis tendon pulling the muscle from the Tibia bone causing pain and inflammation. It is important to make sure you have proper arch support in your shoes with professional, doctor grade, shoe orthotics. This will help support the Talus bone and take the stress off the Tibialis muscle.
