Posterior Tibial Tendon Dysfunction

Symptoms of Posterior Tibial Tendon Dysfunction, also known as PTTD (adult-acquired flat foot), are progressive and may include pain, swelling, and a flattening of the arch.

The posterior tibial tendon is one of the major supporting structures of the foot and when inflammation or overstretching occurs it becomes difficult for the posterior tibial tendon to support the arch. Since posterior tibial tendon dysfunction usually becomes worse over time, it is important that early treatment is sought.
