Dead Bug Yoga Pose
• A high percentage of beginners have anterior shin pain.
• Most can train through this injury.
• High arches, tight calves, high body mass, and too much supination can predispose people to this injury.
• If the pain becomes sharply focused, if the foot loses function more than once or twice, or if each workout is causing a rapid increase in symptoms, stop training.
In most cases, anterior shin pain allows for continued training, under the guidelines listed above.
• Medial shin pain is usually in the front of the shin more toward the inner edge, or deep inside the bone.
• Sometimes the front edge (anterior shin pain) and the inner side are sore at the same time. Combining treatments for both usually helps.
• The pain can be mild and appear after workouts only. This is commonly associated with new exercisers or a rapid mileage or intensity increase.
• A slightly worse injury is indicated when there is pain at the beginning of a workout, which goes away during exercise and returns afterward.
• Diffuse pain usually denotes a less serious injury than pain from a small spot.
• Pain that continues through the workout and especially when walking, indicates a more advanced injury even if the pain is diffuse.
• Pain that involves the bone is a more serious injury.
