This video shows ways of working with shin splints. It is from the section on Sports Injuries in the Sports Massage DVD.
Most medical professionals dislike the term shin splints, as there are a number of different conditions that can cause pain in the anterior calf. I discuss those different conditions in this video.
If the problem is with the Tibialis Anterior, then it is important to work out tension in the Gastrocnemius and Soleus first. Tension in the Gastrocnemius and Soleus will cause the Tibialis Anterior to be lengthened and neurologically inhibited through Reciprocal Inhibition. This makes the Tibialis Anterior more susceptible to being strained.
