Posterior tibial disfunction, or PTD, explained by Dr. Steven Waldman of Milwaukee Foot Specialists. This common condition is often mis-diagnosed as an ankle sprain or arthritis. The posterior tibial tendon and the peroneal tendon work togther to keep your feet stable and moving. Those with flat feet are more prone to PTD, which can lead to nerve impingement, or pinched nerves, and even a tendon tear. If you are having chronic pain in your ankle, swelling, “fallen arches,” or your foot just does not look right, contact us for an appointment today.
