Trigger Point Therapy Tibialis Anterior Release
Plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis, Shin splints, general calf and foot pain, Compartment syndrome and knee pain are all common issues that are usually caused by chronic movement dysfunction. Trigger Point Performance Therapy Self Myofascial Release techniques can help change the length tension relationships in your body which can help alleviate the distress in your system when you move. This should help you and your clients move better thus reducing the likelihood of any of these issues. It has been in the fitness industry for a little while now so the question has to be asked, what’s your favourite or “go to” release for yourself and your clients?
What area of the body do you like to release? Are you a Calf complex person? Which is a commonly known release and very popular. Or are you a glute kinda person? This release is really good for people with lower back pain. One of my favourite manipulations is a release for the Tibialis Anterior. This little known release is quick and simple and really frees up the lower leg. When’s the last time you released the front of your calf complex? Did you know you could?
This area plays a big role in the body’s ability to accept force from the ground as we walk or run. This muscle is the most medial muscle of the anterior of the lower leg. It originates at the lateral condyle and upper portion of the Tibia and inserts into the medial Cuneiform and First Metatarsal and is part of the Superficial Front Line in Myofascial Anatomy. As it crosses over
the front of the ankle it plays a vital role in Ankle Dorsi Flexion and Inversion of the foot. These two movements are huge in how the foot can disperse the force of striking the ground and sharing that load throughout the myofascial network of the body. Releasing this area also helps the Tibia and Fibula perform their roles in the gait movement pattern.
If learning more about this release and others for the lower part of the lower limb (the Trigger Point Therapy Myofascial Compressions Technique course has five for this part of the body. Must be kind of important) and ways to help you “unlock your body” sounds like something you’d be interested in, then come to the next Trigger Point MCT course near you.
