Tibialis Anterior

QUICK VIDEOS

By Part of Tool

WIDE

Can be used here, but due to the proximity of the tibia, it isn’t the ideal edge.

NARROW

When working the muscular area next to the tibia, this edge helps precision.

ROUNDED HEADPIECE

Works well for deeper pressure on this muscle.

Key Takeaways

  • Can be implicated in shin splints, but isn’t necessarily the only cause.
  • Required to create active ankle dorsiflexion.

Precautions

At distal part of the muscle there are nerves close to the surface of the skin. Avoid aggressively scraping this area.
