TIBIALIS POSTERIOR SYNDROME


back

The tibialis posterior muscle comes from behind the shin bone (tibia) and runs into a tendon that passes behind the bony bit on the inside of the ankle (medial malleolus). Inflammation can occur around the medial malleolus and further down under the foot where the tendon attaches. If you over pronate you are more likely to suffer from this injury.

SYMPTOMS

  • Pain over the attachment of the tendon to the navicular bone in the foot.
  • Pain when the tendon slides in the sheath during exercise.
  • Swelling around the medial malleolus (bony bit on the inside of the ankle).

WHAT CAN THE ATHLETE DO? (Not much)
