How do I relieve cramps from the front of my shins?

Answer

To relieve the pain from cramps that are located in the front of the skins you can stretch them out. You will want to stretch the muscle out by pulling the muscle where the cramp is tight. Leg cramping normally occurs on the back of the leg, behind the shin but can happen in the front. Low potassium levels may be the cause of your shin cramps. Shin splints may also be the cause of your cramping.
