origin, popliteal; branches, posterior and anterior tibial recurrent, lateral and medial anterior malleolar, lateral tarsal, medial tarsal, arcuate, dorsal metatarsal, and dorsal digital; continues distal to ankle joint as dorsalis pedia artery.

anterior tibial artery

one of two divisions of the popliteal artery, arising in back of the knee, dividing into six branches, and supplying various muscles of the leg and foot. Branches are the posterior tibial recurrent, anterior tibial recurrent, lateral anterior malleolar artery, medial anterior malleolar artery, lateral malleolar rete, and medial malleolar rete. Compare posterior tibial artery.

anterior tibial artery

branch of the popliteal artery; becomes more superficial in the distal anterior lower leg; it supplies anterior-compartment muscles; it can be palpated as the anterior tibial pulse; it passes into the foot to form the dorsalis pedis artery (Figure 1)

Although the interventions that you have tried so far have all been appropriate in treating anterior tibial pain, I would strongly recommend that you see a sports medicine physician to make sure of your diagnosis and your bone density status.
The hamstrings should counteract knee recurvatum and prevent anterior tibial translation, but the hamstrings in these athletes are typically weak.
Increased tibial slope has been shown to lead to a larger anterior tibial translation via stress to the knee joint, and consequently inducing stretching and rupture of the ACL (Dejour and Bonnin, 1994; Griffin et al.
Their study showed that the proximal portion of the tendon received blood from the anterior tibial artery, while the distal portion received blood from the medial tarsal artery.
