Do you tend to get shin splints after walking or running for a period of time? If so, this could help!
If you tend to strike your heel first when you run or walk, the combination of forward momentum while trying to hold your foot up can create tremendous strain on the muscles in the front of your shin.
This will lead to inflammation, pain and ultimately tightness or tension of the involved muscles – and sets them up for further damage if not addressed properly.
Spend about 5 minutes using this strategy on each leg and then let me know how things feel afterwards! 💬
