"Tibialis Posterior dysfunction is now being treated at The Center for Regenerative Medicine in Miami", according to Dr. Farshchian MD.
This is not an uncommon problem. The tibialis posterior tendon (located in the inner side of ankle ), has the primary action of stabilizing the joint. Patients report their pain gradually occurring without any report of trauma and a review of the literature suggests the exact cause of the disorder not known, researchers suggest that tendon degeneration is the primary cause. This problem is mostly seen in females over 40, however young athletic people are reported to develop this predicament as well.
Sports injuries need an adequate blood supply and cellular migration. Platelet-derived growth factors are critically involved in this process. These cells allow the body to take advantage of the normal healing pathways at a greatly accelerated rate. During the healing process, the body rushes many cells and cell-types to the injected area in order to accelerate the healing process. These cells perform many functions, including release of growth factors (GF) into the diseased or arthritic and injured sites.
The best means of diagnosis is an MRI.
R.I.C.E. may help:
•Rest and shoe modification (arch padding).
•Ice and ultrasound with physical therapy with muscle strengthening.
•Compression and taping.
