The muscles of the tibia are the antagonists of the calf muscles. Usually the calf muscles are better trained than the shin muscle. For longer distances, therefore, pain in the shin will quickly occur. Strong shin muscles stabilise and support the tibia so that the foot does not twist and turn during walking and running. Tendinitis of the shin bone can also be caused by excessive or incorrect strain. Strengthen therefore with the EMS training and the appropriate EMS device your shin muscles to prevent pain and inflammation.
To place the electrodes on the tibia
Here you can see how the adhesive electrodes are placed during EMS training of the shin muscles and which programs we recommend for strength training, endurance training and muscle mass. For this application, the following electrodes are very suitable: the 5 x 5 cm electrodes are very suitable for this application.
