Posterior Tibial Tendonitis
- The posterior tibial tendon is vital in supporting the arch and foot while walking and it attaches the calf muscle to the bones on the inside of the foot. This tendon can tear due to a fall or sudden twist in movement or through overuse. Symptoms include pain along the inside of the ankle that is often worse with activity and swelling may also be present.
Physical therapy will aim to strengthen the tendon and supporting muscles to prevent further injury and maintain full range of motion.
