Foam Roller For Shin Splints - It Guides The Tibia

At first, I thought it was just a marketing gimmick. But it really isn't, because that simple change allows that roller to get behind the Tibia. Dr. Roberts

Running through shin splints can be terribly painful and difficult. Most runners do not have the intestinal fortitude to purge through the agonizing pain and discomfort. Where does the pain stem from? "Most pain is medial to the Tibia (inside of the shin bone/Tibia) and is the result of tension and tightness in the ‘3 bad guys’ - Flexor Digitorum Longus, Soleus and Gastrocnemius," Expressed Dr. Gregory Roberts, a Chiropractor, Corrective Exercise Specialist, Active Release Technique & Graston Technique Provider out of Lakeville, MN. "Typically, shin splint pain is the result of these muscles being overworked and the Periosteum (a dense layer of connective tissue enveloping the bones) pulling away from the bone causing pain."
