Experience Timely Podiatric Management
Do you have inflammation of the tendon in your foot? Is there pain in the instep area of your foot? Post tibial tendonitis or posterior tib tendonitis also known as Post Tib Tendonitis is due to damage or strain and is also caused by flat footedness or overpronation. As a painful condition, Post Tib Tendonitis should be attended to immediately as the condition becomes worse over a period of time. Found in people with an unsteady gait or ankle sprain, Post Tib Tendonitis occurs under the prominence of the inner side of the ankle called the medial malleolus. The podiatrists at Cupertino Podiatry near San Jose, California are experts in problems of the feet and aim towards preserving a normal lifestyle for their patients.

Occurring in the instep region of the foot, Post Tib Tendonitis found at the medial malleolus which is the end of the shin bone where the posterior tibial tendon and the tibia are folded together underneath causes the blood supply to be cut off which results in pain. This portion of the tendon is in a "watershed zone" as the blood supply is weak in this area causing the tendon to become prone to injury due to overuse with no supply of nutrients for healing. Due to this, the foot is flattened resulting in the toes pointing outward exhibiting the fact that the posterior tibial tendon is not functioning in the normal way and failing in its duty to support the arch of the foot. The dysfunction of the tendon not only causes pain in the instep area, but also occurs in the arch, heel pain, heel spurs and/or plantar fasciitis. The pain becomes more severe with running, walking and weight bearing. The podiatrists at the Cupertino clinic offer detailed care to relieve their patients of the pain and render the right treatment to help their patients.

Discover Accurate Advice

With podiatric management and timely care, the experts at the clinic in Cupertino diagnose the problem with precise accuracy and recommend a plan of action that reduces and relieves the symptoms. The podiatrists at the Cupertino clinic examine the affected foot thoroughly and suggest MRI scans that would reveal the condition of the tendon. Maintaining the confidence of the patient with detailed advice and focus on healing, the podiatrists at the clinic near San Jose recommend orthotic devices with arch supports, orthotic footwear that provides cushioning with shock absorbers, shoe inserts, casts, walking boots and controlled activity.

With a treatment plan to alleviate the pain, the podiatrists at the Cupertino clinic would prescribe anti-inflammatory medications or a debridement to clear the inflammation if the arch of the foot has collapsed. In severe cases of Post tibial tendonitis, surgical treatment would be recommended. With a reconstructive procedure, the flexor digitorum longus which is a tendon next to the posterior tibial tendon would be moved to replace the damaged tendon. A reconstructive procedure is usually done along with a bone reconstruction. In advanced or chronic cases of posterior tibial tendonitis, a fusion procedure would be executed when rigidity sets in the arch of the foot. The podiatrists at Cupertino Podiatry near San Jose, California extend their expertise and experienced care with skilled knowledge to offer comfort and relieve any discomfort.
