TRIGGER POINT OF THE WEEK – TIBIALIS ANTERIOR


 The tibialis anterior muscle has a unique pain map, extensively radiating onto the big toe; This pain can sometimes be confused with gout. The tibialis anterior muscle is often associated with painful conditions of the lower leg including "shin splints" and or anterior compartment syndrome. In this syndrome, the enveloping fascia creates a compartment for the muscle which can become rigid and prevent muscle growth and expansion. This can lead to pressure effects and chronic muscle compression, classically leading to inefficiency, trigger points and even periosteal bone damage.
