Which muscles are stiff in Medial Tibial Stress Syndrome?

Here are 2 little infographics I have put together for you to summarise a couple of recent studies looking at Medial Tibial Stress Syndrome (MTSS).

The first looks at risk factors  while the second  compares the shear elastic modulus, which is an index of muscle stiffness, of all posterior lower leg muscles of subjects with a history of MTSS and those with no history .

Some quite surprising result which might drive your treatment protocols?
