Tendon Problems

Tendonitis is a common problem caused by wear and tear due to walking, exercising and general use. The posterior tibial tendon can be especially prone to tendonitis, as it helps to maintain the arch of the foot and prevent excessive flattening of the foot while walking, standing or running. Posterior tibial tendonitis can be a precursor to posterior tibial tendon dysfunction, where there is progressive loss of strength in the tendon and a progressive flattening of the arch.
