    Hi there.

    The Posterior Tibialis tendon runs along the inside of your ankle and attaches into one of the bones of the arch of your foot.

    A tendonitis is merely just a tendon that is dysfunctionally overloaded enough for it to become sore.

    In this case Tibialis Posterior Tendonitis most likely occurs when the arch that it attaches into starts to drop, or overpronate, when walking or running. If unattended, this slight change in the way the tendon is loaded can potentially lead to pain and dysfunction of the tendon.

    Posterior tibial tendon dysfunction is one of the most common problems of the foot and ankle. It occurs when the posterior tibial tendon becomes inflamed or torn. As a result, the tendon may not be able to provide stability and support for the arch of the foot, resulting in flatfoot.
