Tibial Muscle

For those who'd like to know some more I found this great reference to tibial muscles and now I think I know what's going on. I might look after it a little better now.

Northeast Rehabilitation Health Network: "While engaging in an exercise program that involves running some people experience leg pain in the area of their shins. This area, which is the front of your lower leg, includes the anterior and posterior tibial muscle, as well as the tibia bone. Shin pain is often called shin splints, which is thought to be when the muscles are tight and begin to pull at the tibia causing it to splinter. Now shin pain is more specifically defined. Pain located on the outer side of the shin, which would involve the anterior tibia muscle, is classified as anterior tibial stress syndrome. Pain located on the inner side of the shin, which would involve the posterior tibia muscle, is classified as medial tibial stress syndrome. A third possible cause of pain may be a stress fracture of the tibia, which are tiny cracks in the bone due to constant pressure."
