In brief: PTT kinesiology:

Posterior tibial tendinitis could result from an anterior ankle injury when there is excessive demand placed on the tibialis posterior muscle due to anterior ankle laxity.
When one part of a joint becomes weak another part becomes overworked to compensate. This is one reason that ankle injuries need thorough evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment by a qualified doctor.
