Ok I understand why you get shin splints in the front of your shin due to anterior tibialis weakness. I do not understand what cause posterior. I've read enough on the syndrome. I don't have flat feet, don't really know if i over pronate. I have had anterior shin splints in the past during my hs years playing basketball and some college. This was mostly due to sprints. Now im jogging alot and training for the military. I haven't sprint in a few months. I have pain above my medial malleolus going up my medial shin. What exercises do i have to do?
Also what are the biomechanics of the posterior tibialis? I understand the anterior aids the foot in dorsiflexion. When your foot dorsiflexes, the anterior tibialis tightens and shortens. What does the posterior do??? Do heel lifts work the posterior tibialis just as much as the anterior? Also do calf raises help both equally? I don't get it
thanks for the help
