Posterior Tibial Tendon Dysfunction

by admin on July 29, 2010

Posterior tibial tendon dysfunction is something that has to be diagnosed and treated early. It is progressive and without treatment can become very disabling. Just walking with Posterior tibial tendon dysfunction is hard work and requires a lot more energy. The root cause of Posterior tibial tendon dysfunction is a posterior tibial tendon/muscle complex that can no longer do its job. Posterior tibial tendon dysfunction almost always occurs in those with w medial subtalar joint axis which mean the tendon has a shorter lever arm to the joint, so in Posterior tibial tendon dysfunction the muscle has to work a lot harder. The treatment for Posterior tibial tendon dysfunction is to use foot orthotic design parameters that lesson how hard the muscle has to work. If Posterior tibial tendon dysfunction is not diagnosed soon enough, then a surgical intervention is often inevitable.
