Tendonitis in the foot is a common problem amongst hard working people. This is a classic over use injury and affects a particular tendon in the foot, the posterior tibial tendon. This tendon helps to hold the arch of the foot and prevents your feet from rolling in too much. The patients in-step of the foot may appear inflamed and may have a pronounced flat foot deformity.
Symptoms include pain at the in-step of the foot, especially along the course of the tendon. There may be burning, tingling, shooting or stabbing pain present in the foot. This is due to the inflammation of the nerve that surrounds the tendon. If a patient is asked to stand on their toes, intense pain will be present in the arch of the foot.
