Is crepitus normal in foot extensor tendonitis? The pain is gone but I still feel a creaking grating sensation. How to get rid of it?

Usually, tendons get inflamed if they are being overused in trying to compensate for a particular bio mechanical deformity. I would suggest that you visit a podiatrist who specializes in gait analysis to address the issue. ...Read more
