Possible Anterior Tibial Tendonitis
I would first like to compliment you on your site and information! I stumbled across this looking for relief for “anterior tibial tendonitis” symptoms. Although, I have not been formally diagnosed with this, it seems that I have some of the symptoms.
A little history about me: I begin running in 2010 and suffered a stress fracture on my upper tibia, kept running before getting it looked at and this developed into a full fracture. That side-lined me for 6 months from running.
Got into cycling & swimming to work through cardio. Basically got hooked on cycling and resumed running once I was able to. Because of my injury, I learned to better pay attention to my pain observations. I did develop a muscle hernia in my lower leg which was due to the fascia being weak about a year after the fracture. Now I am feeling this new soreness after my longer runs (10 miles) that I believe may be anterior tibial tendonitis. The above issues are all in my lower right leg.
My question is what is your recommendations? I felt this new soreness for about 4 days now and did the RICE and also started using my foam roller for “Foam Roller Exercises and Stretches for the Gastrocnemius Muscles (Calves) and Anterior Tibialis Muscles (Shins)” section. It did bring some relief, but I see that you warn about not doing foam rolling until no soreness is felt somewhere on your site because it could further damage the troubled tendon?
I would like to be more into stretching and prevent these types of problems. I would also like to not take a long time off of running as I am fairly competitive.
I appreciate your feedback and look forward to your advice.
