Posterior Tibial Tendon Dysfunction
Medical Considerations for Posterior Tibial Tendon Dysfunction
PTTD and fallen arches can have an impact on the entire musculoskeletal system by changing your gait. This causes the body to compensate by inappropriately using other muscles and joints, which often results in pain and injury to the knees, hips, spine and other areas of the body.
It is important to seek medical attention for persistent pain in the inside ankle area. Always talk to your doctor if you have soreness, pain, redness, swelling or other indications of problems in any area of your feet that persist for more than a few days.
