Milwaukee Podiatry Clinics Treat Posterior Tibial Tendon Dysfunction
Milwaukee Foot Specialists Relieve Posterior Tibial Tendon Dysfunction with Lasting Results
Great Midwest Foot and Ankle’s Milwaukee podiatry clinics provide long-lasting relief of posterior tibial tendon dysfunction. The posterior tibial tendon serves as the foot’s supporting structure, making it one of the most important tendons in the leg. Posterior tibial tendon dysfunction can occur with overuse, falls or sports injuries. Once the posterior tibial tendon is inflamed or torn the arch of the foot begins to gradually collapse. People suffering from posterior tibial tendon dysfunction experience pain and swelling along the affected tendon (the posterior tibial tendon runs from the calf muscle down to the bones of the foot). When left untreated posterior tibial tendon dysfunction results in flat feet, attributing to decreased balance and arch support. Over time, posterior tibial tendon dysfunction may lead to arthritis and difficulty walking or running.
When you visit our Milwaukee podiatry clinics you will receive a thorough diagnosis to ensure posterior tibial tendon dysfunction is the conclusive result of your foot and ankle pain. If our Milwaukee podiatrist suspects there may be underlying ailments we may order an X-Ray, MRI, CT scan or ultrasound. This enhanced imaging enables accurate detection of fractures, bone breaks or damage to tendons, ligaments and soft tissue.
Upon completing a comprehensive diagnosis our Milwaukee podiatrist may recommend custom orthotics, physical therapy, MLS Laser Therapy or surgery. MLS Laser therapy has proven to be the best intermediary treatment for posterior tibial tendon dysfunction as it aids in the reduction of pain, and inflammation. This foot laser treatment promotes healing of damaged tendons and ligaments by speeding up the body’s natural healing process through acceleration of cell repair and regeneration. Depending on the uniqueness of your condition our Milwaukee foot and ankle specialists may employ a multi-disciplinary approach to ensure faster, longer-lasting results.
