Ankle & Foot - Tibialis Posterior Pain

Tibialis posterior pain is an injury common to runners. The tendon becomes inflamed, partially torn or ruptured, causing pain behind the bone on the inside of the ankle. A direct blow can cause the condition but can also occur gradually due to overuse in runners.

Signs & symptoms:

  • Pain on the inside of the ankle on movement
  • Especially on pointing the foot down and inwards
  • Pain on the arch of the foot when walking on uneven ground
  • Flattening foot arch

Treatment aims to strengthen the muscle and tendon to improve foot mechanics and reduce pain
