PTTD Posterior Tibial Tendonitis Dysfunction
Posterior tibial tendonitis causes pain along the inner side of the lower leg, ankle or foot. Tendons are strong bands of connective tissue which attach muscles to bones. The posterior tibial tendon helps point the foot down and in. Tendonitis is inflammation of a tendon.
Posterior tibial tendonitis occurs from overuse of the tendon. This tendon attaches to a bone in the foot called the navicular and helps stabilize your arch. If your arch flattens out more than normal when you walk or run, it is called over-pronation. When you over-pronate you strain your tendon and are more likely to get posterior tibial tendonitis.
