Tibialis Anterior muscle pain

I gave up competitive hockey years ago and recently started playing in a beer league. I have no time to properly warm-up and will suffer from pain in the muscle on the outer front of the lower legs (called the tibialis anterior). Never had that before.
It really affects my skating during the first period. Taking off the skates during the break will help and make the pain disappear. It's seems worse when it's cold outside. Off-ice warmup does not help.
I do not tighten up my laces very much, thus making the ankle work quite a lot. But tightening too much also affects my skating, not sure if it would help anyway.

Anybody else in a similar situation? Could some kind of workout help? Putting foot support into my skates?

Thanks for any input.

k.

The first thing that comes to mind is not having proper support for your foot. This could be cause by having bad insoles in your skate, and could be aided by an orthotic insole or buying a nice pair of skates designed for your foot (Grafs).

Sounds like shin splints, which are caused by excessive, forceful dorsiflexion and plantarflexion (i.e. bending the ankle up and down). If you tie your skates tighter around the ankles or tape around your ankles, it should help to prevent this type of pain, though like you mentioned, it will probably affect your mobility.

I would agree with this .... I tried some shock doctor inserts and they actually caused me knee pain until I took them out.

Getting a proper ortho made device fit especially for him would be the best thing and would help i am sure of it. I did not get any proper fit ones from a foot doctor and obviously it was not for me.

I can skate without issue anyway in a normal skate but was looking for something as a curiosity after reading things in here about skate inserts.
