Most patients can be treated without surgery, using orthotics and braces. If orthotics and braces do not provide relief, surgery can be an effective way to help with the pain. Surgery might be as simple as removing the inflamed tissue or repairing a simple tear.
Posterior tibial tendon dysfunction (PTT) makes the inner part of your foot or ankle hurt. The pain can make it harder for you to walk or run. Working with a physical therapist can help make the pain better so you can get back to your usual activities.
A stationary bicycle can be very useful in the initial stages post-surgically to assist with gaining ankle range of motion and decreasing swelling.
Currently rated as 30 percent disabling.
Initially, posterior tibial tendonitis is treated without surgery. This includes special shoe inserts, walking boots, or perhaps a short leg cast. The goal of these treatments is to rest the PTT and decrease the inflammation.
Stage I comprised of painful tenosynovitis without any deformity. Stage II consisted of reducible hindfoot valgus. Stage III included rigid hindfoot valgus.
If tendonitis is left untreated, you could develop chronic tendonitis, a tendon rupture (a complete tear of the tendon), or tendonosis (which is degenerative). Chronic tendonitis can cause the tendon to degenerate and weaken over time.
Most damage heals in about two to four weeks, but chronic tendinitis can take more than six weeks.
