What are the best stretches, exercises, and other preventative measures for Tibialis Posterior Tendinitis?

Ankle Dorsiflexion

Stretching_exercises
Ankle dorsiflexion means to move your ankle so your foot moves up towards your knee. This can be done while standing by putting your foot behind you and stretching your heel to the ground. Alternate sides. Go gently at first as you can actually over do stretching. Good Luck!!

What is posterior tibialis tendonitis?

Treatment options

Open-uri20130407-16377-2rsuwi
My suggestions to patients w/ tendonitis consist of RICE, anti-inflammatories (oral/ topical), strengthening/ stretching. I also may suggest massage or bracing. If the above list does not help then you may want to consider discussing injections (cortisone or PRP), oral/ topical prescriptions, or even orthotics with your physician.

Is it alright to ski if i am overcoming tibialis anterior tendonitis and just sprained my ankle today?

Fine once recovered

Extremity-joint-ankle
I recommend obtaining medical clearance from at least your physical therapist and your treating physician. Ski boots tend to put considerable pressure directly over the area of your foot and ankle that is home to your tibialis anetrior tendon. Skiing is a great sport, but chronic tendinitis may diminish the fun due to pain. Swelling around your ankle will potentially make boot fitting difficult.

Dr. Liawaty Ho answered:

Is there treatment for tendinitis?

Yes

Bayer
Most of the time tendinitis is treated conservatively with NSAIDS (aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxen) and lots of rest. Ice, compression, and elevation of the leg can help. Physical therapy may be recommended to stretch and strengthen the tendon. Gradually increase physical activity to keep the tendon flexible. Full recovery usually takes a few weeks. For very severe injuries, you may need surgery.

What is the treatment for hip tendinitis?

Rest and therapy

Fever
Its important that a proper diagnosis has been made. If hip tendinitis is present then avoidance of painful maneuvers, proper stretching and therapy exercises, icing and anti inflammatory medication, and sometimes an injection of steroid can be tried. If symptoms persist further workup and evaluation by a specialist may be needed to confirm the diagnosis or rule out other diagnosis around the hip.

What is the best treatment for quad tendinitis?

Rest, meds, PT, u/s

Open-uri20120731-626-eodj0t
Tendinitis in the limbs is often result of over use/trauma and the first thing to do is take it easy/rest a bit. Antiinflammatory meds such as aleve/motrin may help. Physical therapy/gentle stretching/ROM exercises. Iontophoresis ultrasounds therapy, topical meds etc...may help quite a bit as well. So, if doing on your own not enough, consult doc. Good luck

What is the best treatment for elbow tendinitis?

Many options

Open-uri20130323-3701-bt4lfs
Physical therapy for Iontophoresis and phonophoresis, deep tissue modalities, stretching, and strengthening. Ice for 10-15 min 4 times a day, counterforce strap bracing, NSAIDs, and avoidance of the activity that aggravates. Occasionally a wrist brace is used and steroid injections can be considered for cases lasting months that don't respond. Surgery is rarely indicated.

It depends somewhat on the tendon involved by the inflammation but most times the tendinitis will resolve with a local cortisone injection. Splinting, ice and anti-inflammatory meds can also be used.
