... day.My surgeon told me I have to change jobs as this is probably a degenerative condition. Does anyone have any experience with this? I am 62, 45 pounds overweight with no other health issues. I have this condition on both legs
I googled "posterior tibial tendonitis" and had a wealth of information come up. Yes, it does get worse. The problem is often caused by overuse of particular tendons, so rest is required. You can't rest the tendons if you're walking all day unless you have special inserts, which may prove inadequate, or casts, so the job change recommendation was reasonable. Surgery may be required, yet may not solve the problem completely. Again, resting your tendons seems your best answer. You can be in a lot of pain from this and your arches can collapse to a flat position. There's poor blood flow to these tendons and massage seems to help. I'll let you research further for details about this.
