Posterior Tibial Tendon Dysfunction (PTTD)


PTTD is a common but potentially destructive condition affecting up to 8% of the population. Conservative management of this problem is the mainstay of treatment. To ensure good outcomes early diagnosis and intervention is essential. As is the case in all tendinopathy conditions the appropriate treatment should be targeted at the appropriate stage of the pathological cycle.

Rehabilitation exercises and orthotic considerations are central to good outcomes and pain relief in this condition however bracing and footwear modifications are often also required for the long-term more advanced management of this problem.

Footwear modifications should be considered standard part of podiatry treatment options and a good understanding of the implications around these are required to implement successfully.

We will have a brief look at the outcome studies for conservative management of this condition and present an insight for a case review involving both orthotic and footwear modification.
