Step 1 - End Muscle Attachment Inflammation

Here's what we're going to do:

A. Inside of Shin Release - Tibialis Posterior

Lie on your back and cross your leg with the injured ankle over your other leg so your lower leg of one leg is resting on the thigh of your other leg. Take both of your thumbs and press it into the tissue between your shin bone and your achilles tendon on the leg that is crossed while you flex your foot up and down. Notice any tender tissue in this area from your ankle to about halfway up your shin bone.

Perform the press-hold-move technique and the press-pull-release technique on any tight tissue you find.

How effective is this one technique as a shin splints treatment.

B. Front of Shin Release - Tibialis Anterior

Sit in a chair or lie on your back to what follows.

hand-on-hand technique along with the press-hold-move technique to undo any tight/painful/tender tissue you may find.

This can be a lot of work if this muscle is tight, so please do pace yourself. If your fingers and hands get tired then take a break.

Notice how effective this one technique is as a shin splints treatment.

Step 2 - Restore Joint Muscle Balance

Step 2b - Bottom Of Foot

All the muscles that attach to your two lower leg bones need to be appropriately free in order for your lower leg to function properly and eliminate your shin splint symptoms. We already did the two of them in step one, so now we'll do the two other main players in your lower leg. Releasing these will only help whatever is going on.

Here's what we're going to do:

A. Outer Lower Leg Release -

Once again we'll be using the hand-on-hand techniqueand the press-hold-move technique to release the muscles on the very outside edge of your lower leg.

The press-pull-release technique is also a very viable option with these muscles. You can alternate techniques and see if one works better than the other, or if the combination of the two works better.

How is this as a shin splints treatment?

B. Calf Stretch (do this stretch slowly) -

As I say in the video, and I'll say here again, "Please, GO SLOWLY" with this stretch.

And as you are going slowly, just make sure your calf muscle in engaged a bit while you are stretching it. This is a great stretch. I just want you to be careful.

Notice how effective this one technique is as a shin splints treatment.

Video 2b - Bottom Of Foot Release - I've added this one shin splints treatment technique just in case your shin splint symptoms still linger a bit after doing all to above.

A. Bottom of Foot Release -

Using primarily your thumbs, do thepress-pull-release technique on the tissue you find in the bottom of your foot that is painful when you press on it.

If your thumbs become fatiqued, take a few minutes off, or even a few hours off if you need it.

You can also do the press-hold-move technique on this same area while you flex your toes and hold on one spot.

Do at least 2 more rounds on the bottom of your foot before moving on to Step 3.

Another option is to use the hand-on-hand technique, the press-pull-release technique and the press-hold-move technique to get into and release the bottom of your foot.

Notice how much effective this one technique is as a shin splints treatment.

The tennis-ball-press technique is another way to work on the bottom of your foot and something you can do while working at your desk.

Step 3 - Stop Nerve Pathway Irritation

Here's what we're going to do:

A. Reclined Hip Stretch -

Please watch the video for this stretch and take the time to learn to do it properly. The key is the remember that it's the arm on the same side as the leg that is crossed that you shoot over your shin. Then the other arm goes between your legs to grab the first arm.

B. Seated Hip Stretch -

The most important thing to remember with this stretch is that you want to feel the stretch deep in your hip or in the groin and hamstring of your front leg. If you happen to feel this stretch in your knee at all, then take a moment to readjust the position of your front foot until you no longer feel your knee.

C. Hamstring Stretch -

1. Legs always remain straight
2. Thighs are always flexing while doing this stretch
3. For even more hamstring stretch information, please visit my Best Hamstring Stretches (click here) page.

Are you still experiencing some shin splint symptoms?
Which muscles are still tender (that means they are too tight!) and could use some more work?
Go back and repeat those techniques that seem to need a few more rounds. You may be pleasantly surprised at the results you get now that you've released other muscles that may prevented them letting go on the first attempt.

"Hi Gary, I see a PT every 6 weeks for  a 2 hour session and she keeps my back and body in good shape. However I've always wished I could fix my self for the time in between visits when  I sit for too long or pull something.  I've been taking Zumba for years and recently pulled a tendon so bad in my foot it Charley Horsed. on me and could not walk. Desperate to fix it I found your website. I realized from your site I had posterior shin splints. My primary care dr confirmed this. My PT couldn't fit me in for a week so I did your videos for past week  for shin splints and am off crutches and walking normally!  I can't thank you enough for sharing your expertise on your site.  You do great work!" - from Cat, in the USA
