There are many causes of tibialis posterior tendinopathy

Tibialis posterior tendinopathy can occur as a result of overuse, often due to repetitive motions such as running or jumping. It can also be caused by biomechanical issues, such as wear and tear on the tendon due to imbalances in balance and strength of neighbouring leg muscles. In order to treat this condition, it is important to work with a chiropractor or physiotherapist who can identify any biomechanical problems that may be contributing to the injury. Furthermore, massage therapy can be useful for reducing tension in the tendon, relieving inflammation, and decreasing overall discomfort.

Tibialis posterior tendinopathy is a condition characterized by pain and inflammation of the tendon located in the inner side of the calf. This tendon connects from the back of the lower leg to several bones which run around the ankle joint, providing stability while walking, running or otherwise standing on one’s feet. It is caused by constant strain and overuse, leading to injuries related to high-impact activities such as running or jumping.

Tibialis posterior tendinopathy is a common sports-related injury and can be quite painful. Symptoms include achiness, tenderness, and sometimes pain created when the tendon is used in flexing the ankle joint. The Achilles tendon may also become tighter when the foot flattens which can lead to increased pain. Extreme cases of this condition often make it difficult to go up stairs, inclines or even stand on your toes as there will be sharp pain in the back of the calf.

Tibialis posterior tendinopathy is a condition characterized by inflammation, irritation and tearing of the tibialis posterior tendon and is usually found in people who lead active lifestyles. The good news is that it can be treated with chiropractic adjustments, physiotherapy, massage therapy and specific exercises designed to strengthen your midfoot and ankle. If left untreated however, this condition can worsen and lead to decreased balance and gait control as well as eventual deformity. When seeking treatment for tibialis posterior tendinopathy it’s important to consult a chiropractor or rehabilitation professional who are experienced in dealing with foot injuries to ensure we receive an appropriate diagnosis and treatment plan.

I cannot recommend Dr. Shannon Webster and Dr. Michael Torreiter enough. Both are super friendly and understanding and it has been an absolute pleasure to have met them and been treated by them.

I have been receiving treatment from Dr. Webster for a few months and I've been feeling much better. I had sever knee, shoulder and back pain. I couldn't squat or do push ups without my joints screaming at me. But now I'm not able to only do all those but also feel stronger. The most important piece is that she listened and took my history of many injuries into consideration. And as a dancer, I couldn't have asked for a better chiropractor who not only helped me feel better but also understood my needs.

I also brought my grandmother to Dr. Torreiter for her back pain for acupuncture. He was extremely kind, understanding, compassionate and everything that I could ask for. He made her feel comfortable and explained every step during each treatment. He made sure that she was well taken care of and also made other important referrals that lead to her recovery.

So far I have referred my whole family to these two wonderful individuals and everyone's experience has been equally great. Thanks to them we all are doing much better!
