Calf Stretch: Relief from Shin Splints
Stretch your calf muscles out to help with shin splints? Yep! If your calf muscles are too tight or have fascial restrictions, then the muscles on the front of your leg have to pull extra hard to allow the toes to not hit the floor when you are walking or running. Stretching the calves will allow the muscles that attach to your shin to relax and for you to have a pain free run.
