Shin Splint Stretch # 1
This stretch involves the use of a theraband (I’ve also used the leg of a pair of sweats or tights when I am in a pinch).
Put the theraband over the top of your toes and about an inch of your foot.
Hold the ends of the theraband to the outside of your ankle letting it wrap behind your heel.
Pull the band and extend your leg out in front of you using the theraband to pull your foot into a pointed position.
You should end up feeling a great stretch on the top of your ankle and your lower shin
