Posterior Tibial Tendinitis: Some Key Points

 Posterior Tibial Tendinitis: Key Points

 ■ This tendon moves the ankle, prevents over pronation, and supports the arch
 ■ Treatment of this tendon at times requires stabilization of all 3 areas with ankle bracing, inverted orthotic support, and arch support
 ■ As soon as treatment is started to immobilize the injured tendon, both anti-inflammatory and some form of strengthening should begin
 ■ MRI should be used initially to rule out an actual tear, or if the treatment seems to hit an impasse
