Posterior Tibial Tendon Dysfunction

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.
