Q. Have been suffering with posterior tibialis tendinitis for about six weeks now. I tried a run last sun since feeling stronger but my ankle still doesn't feel right. How much longer? I have been strengthening and stretching massaging. I managed 10k at the weekend. - samsunguser

A. A very difficult time line to be accurate with. Textbook answer is 6 weeks of rest for all soft tissue injuries. You are clearly back running and still in pain.

The exercises you mention do not specify that they have been "eccentric" if this is the case then without eccentric loading I can't see how it will resolve.
