Foot Trainer Exercises for Shin Splints

How Do Foot Training Exercises Help Shin Splints?

Foot Trainer Exercises are effective because they focus on relaxing your tight posterior lower leg muscles/tendons and strengthening your weak anterior lower leg muscles.

Foot Trainer Exercises for shin splints consist of a progression through 3 levels (isometric, isokinetic and concentric) and 7 exercises. They allow you to start with simple exercises and gradually build up to more complex exercises at your own pace.

The following are 2 exercises for shin splints

Exercise 1.

  • Sit with your back and legs supported.
  • Place the rubber pads below your toes.
  • Move the Foot Trainer back until the rubber pads touch the top of your feet.
  • Slowly move your feet toward your body while you resist with the Foot Trainer.
  • Exercise 2.

  • Lie on your back with both of your legs bent and your feet flat on the ground.
  • Move your exercising leg up toward your body.
  • Hold the Foot Trainer Handle with both hands then and place the rubber pads below your toes.
  • Move The Foot Trainer forward until you feel the rubber pads touch the top of your feet.
  • Slowly move your lower leg upward while you resist with the Foot Trainer.
  • Rehabilitation Routine

    Shin Splints require that the patient be active in their rehabilitation. Performing this routine for 3-4 weeks has shown excellent results with our customers.

    Perform Foot Trainer Exercises in the morning.

    Self massage lower legs for 5 minutes, concentrating on tender areas.

    Ice your tender areas for 5 minutes. Do not apply ice directly on your skin. Use a damp cloth or a gel pack.

    Rest after icing for 5-10 minutes.

    Repeat again sometime during the day before bed.
