At least, this is what I think is going on at my left tibia. The pain is anterior and a little lateral, at the very top of the tibia (right on that bony part below the knee). The pain is pinpoint on that spot and does not radiate down or anything. I get the pain whenever putting pressure on it basically... squats, deadlifts, etc. I should mention that three years ago, I broke my left foot, and now it is flat with only a little arch (my right foot is normal).
So what could be the cause of the injury, and how could I prevent this pain? I think the cause could be a mechanical thing because of the left foot that is flat, or maybe a lack of strength in the tibialis anterior?
My plan for now has been: strengthen the TA (heel-to-toe walks), roll over my feet with a lacrosse ball, foam roll the TA, use The Stick on calves/achilles/peroneals, and try to get my arch back by warming up barefoot, walking the dog barefoot, etc.
Thanks in advance.
