Posterior tibial tendonitis causes a sharp pain around your ankle, along your arch, and along the bottom of your foot. Although there are several causes for the inflammation of the tendon along your arch, the most common cause is overpronation. In order to prevent this from happening or treat the pain, you can have orthotics placed in your shoes. In order to do this, you first need to track down the right ones for you and your feet.
You can meet with a podiatrist to get inserts for your shoes. A podiatrist is someone who specializes in treating the foot, ankle, and other structures of the leg. Your doctor will examine your feet to determine if you require surgery or other treatments to fix the posterior tibial tendonitis problem. He or she will work with you to choose inserts that would be helpful for your feet.
You can also find inserts from your local pharmacist. This is the cheapest option when searching for an insert, but it’s close to impossible to find the right insert for your feet. In some stores, you may have seen machines that allow you to step on them to create inserts for you. This uses heat to determine how to create the inserts for you. This may be helpful when you need something fast, but they won’t last very long.
