In brief: Protecting the foot
Treatment depends on the severity of the dysfunction.
The pt muscle is the main strap muscle that holds up the arch and tries to control over pronation of the foot. If this is severely damaged, the arch can collapse and lead the serious foot deformities and discomfort. The goal of treatment is to protect the arch from damage. See your foot specialist. Dr l.
