Overcome Shin Pain with JANMI Trigger Point Therapy:

Dear Friends and Fellow Wellness Enthusiasts,


As the founder of JANMI, I've dedicated myself to providing treatments that not only alleviate pain but also address the underlying causes to prevent recurrence. Today, I want to talk specifically about shin pain—a common issue many runners and active individuals face—and how our targeted Trigger Point Therapy can help.


Understanding Shin Pain: More Than Just Discomfort


Shin pain, or shin splints, occurs from overuse of the muscles and tendons near the shinbone or tibia, and inflammation of the surrounding tissues. This can hinder your mobility and diminish your quality of life.


Identifying the Culprit Muscles and Trigger Points

In our practice at JANMI, we focus on two specific muscles that frequently harbor trigger points contributing to shin pain:

1. The Tibialis Anterior: This muscle runs down the front of the shin and controls the upward movement of the foot. Trigger points in the tibialis anterior can cause pain that radiates along the shin, often mistaken for shin splints.

2. The Soleus: Located in the calf, beneath the more prominent gastrocnemius muscle, the soleus can develop trigger points from activities like prolonged walking, running, or even standing. These points can cause pain not just in the calf but also along the shin and into the heel, mimicking conditions like Achilles tendonitis.


What Causes Trigger Points in These Muscles?


The development of trigger points in the tibialis anterior and soleus can be attributed to several factors:

- Overuse: Repeated activities such as running or cycling can overstrain these muscles, leading to the development of knots or trigger points.

- Inadequate Stretching: Skipping proper stretches before and after exercise can increase the risk of tight muscles and trigger points.

- Poor Footwear: Wearing unsupportive shoes can place undue stress on the lower legs, particularly impacting the tibialis anterior and soleus.

- Biomechanical Irregularities: Issues such as flat feet or an abnormal gait can contribute to uneven distribution of pressure, aggravating these muscles.


How Does Trigger Point Therapy Help?


At JANMI, our approach to Trigger Point Therapy involves several strategic steps:

- Identification and Assessment: Through comprehensive assessment techniques, we identify specific trigger points in the tibialis anterior and soleus.

- Direct Pressure and Release: We apply targeted pressure to these points to relieve tension and restore normal muscle function.

- Integrated Care: Alongside direct treatment, we offer guidance on exercises and lifestyle adjustments to support long-term relief.

Many of our clients have found substantial relief through our targeted approach. For example, Sarah, a long-distance runner, experienced debilitating shin pain that compromised her training.
