Tibialis Posterior Tendinopathy
Posterior Tibialis tendinopathy is a condition that causes pain and inflammation on the inside of your foot, specifically the instep/arch and the inside of your ankle.
WHAT ARE THE CAUSES & RISK FACTORS?
It is thought to be caused by repetitive stress and minor tendon injuries as a result of an abrupt increase in activity.
Repetitive stress and minor injuries slow the tendon’s normal healing response. As a result, injuries within the tendon may occur at a rate faster than the body can heal them. This can then lead to tendon weakness. A weakened tendon is more susceptible to injury.
