Posterior tibial tendon dysfunction, more commonly known as post tib tendonitis, is a condition in which the posterior tibial tendon is torn or inflamed. This is a common problem in the foot and ankle, but it can result in reduced stability and flat feet.
Post tib tendonitis occurs when the muscles and tendons in this area of the foot and ankle are overused. It may also result from overpronation.
People with post tib tendonitis may feel temporary pain and swelling along the inside of the foot and ankle. But if the muscles and tendons are continually overused, these symptoms typically worsen and become more chronic in nature.
For cases where post tib tendonitis is not severe, a combination of rest, ice and over-the-counter medications can reduce pain and swelling. Orthotics or braces are typically recommended for providing proper foot support. In more serious cases, physical therapy or surgery may be necessary.
