Posterior Tibial Tendonitis


Posterior Tibial Tendonitis is an overuse condition caused when heavy loads or excess strain is placed on the tendon, exceeding what it can safely handle. This tendon plays a major role in typical gait function, without it we have difficulty to stand on tip toes or "toe-off" during gait. 

Posterior Tibial Tendonitis causes pain, tenderness  and swelling on the inside of the ankle or foot. You may also experience muscle aches and noticeable flattening of the affected arch.
