Re: Posterior Tibial Tendon Dysfunction

Your description is very thorough but I must say without examining him myself, I am just making suggestions.

First, I would get a MRI of his ankle. If there is a posterior tibial tendon problem, it will be evident.

There are several braces that can be used for this problem. In my practice, as an entry level treatmetn I will try an ASO brace sometimes with an orthotic. Usually I will recommend a Richie type brace which incorporates an orthotic and ankle brace together. I have good success with these braces for this problem.

I suggest you see another doctor and discuss getting an MRI. Also ask about a Richie type brace.

Good luck.
