Posterior Tibial Tendonitis Exercises

Posterior Tibial Tendonitis is a common cause of inner ankle pain. It is most commonly found in runners and high-impact sports such as basketball. It can also be caused by increased walking or foot deformity, such as an adult-acquired flat foot. Posterior Tibial Tendon Exercises are the most effective form of management for this type of tendonitis.
