Tibialis Posterior is a musculotendonous structure responsible for maintaining foot stability, and plays an important role every step when walking or running. Injury can be caused by a single incident, or a gradual onset. There are many factors that can cause injury, so they will be assessed and this determines the treament. Often an Ultrasound scan is needed to assess how badly the injury is, and to rule out tears or rupture.
Treament will require exercises, possibly Orthotics and Physiotherapy, but in certain cases a brace or imobilisation in a boot may be needed for a period of time.
