Posterior tibialis tendonitis

Posterior tibialis tendonitis occurs when the posterior tibialis tendon becomes overloaded and irritated. The posterior tibialis tendon starts in the calf muscle, winds under the inside ankle bone and inserts into the arch of the foot. The posterior tibialis tendon has a few key function: it helps maintain the arch of the foot, it helps invert the ankle (rotate the foot in) and it helps plantarflex the ankle (or point your toes). (Typical) Symptoms: The hallmark sign of posterior tibialis tendonitis is localized pain along the inside of the foot and ankle, sometimes stretching up a few inches into the shin. This might be accompanied by clicking or creaking felt within the tendon during movem

Peroneal Tendonitis

The peroneal muscles (peroneus brevis and peroneus longus) lay on the outside of the lower leg; the two peroneal tendons travel side by side behind the outer ankle bone and down into the foot. The main function of the peroneal tendons is to stabilize the foot and ankle. The tendons also act in together to evert your foot (roll it outwards) and also help assist your calf muscles in plantarflexing your ankle (pointing your toes). Peroneal tendon injuries often cause pain on the outside of your foot, outer ankle and/ or up the outside of the lower leg. Peroneal tendon injuries can affect anyone; often caused by overuse of the tendon or trauma (such as an ankle sprain). Peroneal tendon injuries
