Posterior tibial tendon dysfunction - also called adult acquired flatfoot - is caused by the gradual stretching and tearing of tendons and ligaments in the foot.
Since posterior tibial tendon dysfunction is best treated early on, you should contact Great Lakes Foot & Ankle Centers as soon as you suspect the problem.
The best diagnosis is made through clinical observation and a hands-on examination. X-rays and MRIs, although not always needed, may be used to confirm a diagnosis.
Treatments include casts, orthoses, shoe therapy, and surgery.
