Posterior Tibial Tendonitis

See on Scoop.itChiropractic

Posterior tibial tendonitis is an ankle problem that causes pain on the inner side of the joint. Most often treatment is focused on preventing a flatfoot deformity.

Posterior tibial tendonitis is an issue affecting one of the tendons located on the inner side of the ankle. The posterior tibial muscle adheres to the back of the shin bone, where the posterior tibial tendon connects the muscle to the bones of the foot. The posterior tibial tendon passes down the back of the leg, not far from the Achilles tendon, then turns under the prominence of the inner side of the ankle.

The problem with posterior tibial tendonitis results when it is left untreated and eventually begins to develop into a condition called adult acquired flatfoot deformity or AAFD.  This condition usually begins with pain and weakness of the tendon, but as the condition progresses, the ligaments of the foot are affected, and the foot joints can become malaligned and rigid.

Dr. Alex Jimenez D.C.,C.C.S.T’s insight:

Posterior tibial tendonitis is a condition where a single tendon located on the inner side of the ankle becomes damaged, causing pain and an unsteady gait. If left untreated, this condition can develop into adult acquired flatfood deformity. For more information, please feel free to ask Dr. Jimenez or contact us at (915) 850-0900.
