    Tibial tendonitis is usually related to poor foot and leg biomechanics, unsupportive shoes or a sudden increase in walking. The main treatment involves correcting the cause but taping to unload the tendon, calf stretches if you calf is tight and intrinsic foot exercises to support the arch of the foot may also help.
    Retraining how th tibial tendon works needs to be taught on an individual basis by a skilled physiotherapist to help it settle.
    Of course avoiding any pain causing activities early is also important. Seek help if it is not improving in a week as it can become very persistent if not cared for.
