Shin pain is a common issue with runners. In talking with several high school athletes and coaches, they report this to be one of their biggest areas of pain. It can certainly be a complicated thing to unravel after the pain starts in with each individual having specific needs. When you look at the common underlying factors, what you often see is lack of flexibility in the calves, as well as weakness in the feet and hips. All these contribute to increased ground contact time with each stride causing increased stress on the medial shin. This is the subject I tackle today in this video! Have a look and please tell me if these are helpful to you and what other topics you would like to see covered.
Also, it would make my week if you shared this video or the site with someone else. No pressure or anything!
