Foot is a very complex anatomy. Due to the strain the foot taking weight bearing, injury to its parts is not uncommon. Foot Tendon injuries in particular occur frequently, and can be a source of pain and disability. This article will discuss the three most common tendon injuries in the foot, and how they can be prevented.
Foot contains many tendons, which is a flat tube flexible network attached muscle to bone, and allow the muscles to move the bones to a physical. Some originated as a muscle tendon located in the foot, and others came on foot. These muscles, when working together, stabilize the foot and ankle, and when acting separately, allowing for movement in all directions. There are three groups of muscles that allow for the most movement in the leg, and injury to the tendons of these muscles is not uncommon for events or trauma. This tendon Achilles tendon, peroneal tendon, and posterior tibial tendon.
Posterior Tibial Tendon Injury
The most common tendon injuries in the foot end is the posterior tibial tendon. Tendon injury is somewhat unique substance may ultimately lead to changes in the shape of the foot if the condition progresses. The posterior tibial tendon starts of the muscle on the side of the leg, and attaches to the inside of the foot. The action is the opposite of the peroneal tendon, such as pulling the foot down and inward. It acts as a powerful deterrent to excessive horizontal leg.
Posterior Tibial Tendon is the most common foot tendon injury. It also known as Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome. It could lead to posterior tibial tendonitis, posterior tibial tendon tear.
Causes Of Posterior Tibial Tendon Injury
Injury to this tendon can come from trauma that forces outside of the foot, or of something that frankly striking distance on the inside. However, the posterior tibial tendon often injured by the simple day to day stress on the tendon on them with the kind of foot-flat or near flat. As a naturally flat feet during standing and walking, excess movement of the feet flat has led to rising tensions with the inner aspect of the ankle foot. Finally, this type of virus can cause tendon damage, inflammation, and possibly degeneration. If left untreated, this damage will get worse, and the tendon will stretch and weaken. Ultimately, this will lead to more equitable than the legs, chronic pain, and significant structural weaknesses feet.
Preventions Of Posterior Tibial Tendon Injury
For injury prevention involves a long-term structural support in the form of stiff-soled shoes that support the arch supports and prescription (orthotics) to control the flattening of the foot. Severe cases may require the use of ankle braces and individually adjusted to limit movement of abnormal structural, or even reconstructive surgery to keep the symptoms from persisting.
