Taping for Posterior Tibial Tendon Dysfunction/Tendinitis
This video presents the use of 2 inch Kinesiotape to help support the arch relaxing the pull of the posterior tibial tendon. The various injuries associated with over pronation and the posterior tibial tendon are helped with this taping technique. The injuries include (although not exclusive): posterior or medial shin splints, posterior tibial tendinitis, os tibial externum syndrome, arch strain, and tibial stress fractures. This form of taping is a common adjunct to stable shoes, orthotic devices, and power lacing. For those of you unfamiliar with power lacing, the video below shows this powerful stabilizing technique.
