Characteristics of Tibialis Posterior Dysfunction (Tendinopathy):

Tibialis Posterior Tendon Dysfunction occurs when the posterior tibial tendon becomes injured, inflamed or torn. As a result, the tendon may not be able to provide stability and support for the arch of the foot. 

Some patients experience the sensation of a suddenly “fallen arch”. Symptoms include: pain and swelling along the inside of the foot and ankle.

Usually high-impact activities, such as running, jumping, side-to-side movement, can be very difficult. Difficulty standing for long periods and walking are common.
