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

Ankle Dorsiflexion: 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! ...Read more

It is a very important tendon that has a role in supporting the arch of the foot. It can become inflamed and painful and when this happens we call it tendonitis. This condition can be associated with flat feet, obesity, and -->. ...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

Fine once recovered: 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. ...Read more

What type of tendonitis treatment do you recommend?

NSAIDs and rest: Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories such as Ibuprofen and rest. Once you return to activity, gentle stretching exercises are important. Steroid injections are a bad idea as they can weaken the tendon, possibly leading to more serious problems, such as tendon rupture. ...Read more
