Posterior tibial tendinitis may be the cause of your inner ankle pain

Posterior tibial tendinitis is a condition that involves the inflammation of the tendon toward the back inside of the ankle. This tendon is involved in various functions, including running, walking, and jumping. Posterior tibial tendinitis is known to cause pain and swelling in the feet and trouble walking and performing other activities. It’s a common kind of injury that can occur to the foot.

Have you recently been diagnosed with posterior tibial tendinitis, or think you may soon be? Read here to learn more about the causes of inner ankle pain and how virtual physical therapy can benefit those who have it.

Which conditions might cause posterior tibial tendinitis to develop and eventually cause inner ankle pain?

There are a few different conditions that could cause posterior tibial tendinitis to develop. When this happens, inner ankle pain is more likely to occur. Look at some of the conditions that can start this chain reaction listed below.

What are some of the virtual PT treatments available for inner ankle pain?

A virtual physical therapist can diagnose and treat someone who has inner ankle pain in a few different ways. Virtual physical therapy treatments are of the same high quality as in-person treatments. They offer the same benefits, all while from the comfort of your own home. Take a look through each of the treatments listed below to learn more. 

  • Strengthening exercise — One of the treatment methods that a virtual physical therapist could use during a session is strengthening exercises. They’ll guide you through a series of intentionally planned exercises that build muscle around your ankle.
  • Stretching exercise — Another treatment for someone with inner ankle pain is stretching exercise. Stretching can help loosen muscle tension and improve range of motion. 
  • Gait and balance retraining — If you’re dealing with inner ankle pain, chances are your gait and balance have been affected. A virtual physical therapist can help guide you through retraining your gait and balance. If you’re using other areas of your body to compensate for a weak or painful ankle, you may need to correct your gait to avoid negative effects like muscle imbalance or strain.
  • Flexibility exercises — A virtual physical therapist can help you build flexibility in your ankle. If you’re experiencing stiffness and pain in your ankle, PT can increase your flexibility over time.

Why choose Agile Virtual Physical Therapy for your inner ankle pain?

We understand that going to regular in-person physical therapy sessions can be a serious time commitment. When you consider the time it takes to drive to and from your sessions, the length of the sessions themselves, and other related factors, in-person PT can be tedious. Fortunately, getting the care you need doesn’t have to be. 

You may not feel up to going to in-person physical therapy if you’re dealing with inner ankle pain from posterior tibial tendinitis, or you may not have a reliable source of transportation.
