When that happens foot slapping occurs, a tell tale sign of shin splints. Its opposite muscle, the tibialis posterior is usually overworking and very sore. Release of the tib post followed by activation of the tib ant is a good start to solving shin splints. Of course this is very formulaic and there are many other possible relationships. In NKT we look for those relationships by testing and assessing, not just applying formulas.
