Posterior Tibial Tendon Dysfunction

by Admin on May 2, 2012

Posterior tibial tendon dysfunction is a common cause of flat or pronated feet in adults. The posterior tibial muscle is an important supporter of the arch of the foot, so if this muscle can no longer do its job, the foot will progressively get flatter and more painful. This needs to be treated early to prevent to progressing to end stage when surgery is the only option.
