What is posterior tibialis tendonitis?

Treatment options: 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. ...Read more

Cold compresses help: I have found that tendinitis frequently responds to application of cold compresses, particularly gel devices kept in a freezer which when applied to tendinitis will cut the inflammation down and provide comfort without the potential side effects of listed medications (which help as well but can cause considerable side effects). Such gel devices can be found in drug stores (OTC). ...Read more

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. ...Read more
