Posterior Tibial Tendon Dysfunction

Posted: 21/09/2015 at 13:20

Hello All,

I've recently been diagnosed with having probable posterior tibial tendon dysfunction (grade 1) with possible associated bone stress reaction. I injured myself right at the beginning of May, and was originally misdiagnosed (by a physio) as having medial tibial stress syndrome with possible stress fracture, but about 2 months ago was rediagnosed by my podiatrist! My pod has since asked my GP to refer me to orthapeadics. My GP has referred me for an xray with a possible follow up from orthapeadics, so now I'm waiting for the appointments to come through.

Has anyone had any experience of this injury, and were you able to recover and get back to running? I've not run for nearly 6 months and the pain is still pretty bad. Just feeling very frustrated really!

Thanks everyone.

My daughter has a thing for cashews at the moment...has put me off praline chocolate for life.

Beginning to run after birth

Go and ask your GP if it is ok, rather than relying on 2nd hand advice from a friend. I know plenty of breast feeding mums who run, with no issues like you describe. I had a prolapse after giving birth to my daughter, nowt to do with running, I was unlucky. Fortunately it is much improved after lots of Pilates and I now have no problems with this and running.

I personally found 17 weeks post birth too soon to be running again, but again, I know lots of mums that have run from earlier than that. If you've been doing bootcamp without problems I would expect that some gentle running would be ok, but do give yourself lots of time to build up slowly. One thing to bear in mind with all exercise and breastfeeding is that all the hormones do make all your ligaments etc more flexible than usual, so you should take things carefully so as not to get injured.

Get her to take a look at the Freya Sports Crop Top. The sizing can be a bit odd, so she'd need to try a couple on maybe to find the right fit (Less bounce give great advice over the phone and have good returns - and actually may be able to advise on what else could work), it's the only vaguely comfortable sports bra I have ever had, and it works.

Running capri tights - recommendations?

I know what you mean about the tightness around the calves. There seems to be a fashion for them to be a bit longer than I find comfortable at the moment.

I've a couple of pairs of Nike ones, but the others I have which I find comfy are from Trespass. Cheap, cheerful, very lightweight and comfy just below the knee.

Another thumbs up for the flipbelt. I adore mine and I've tried many belts! Having said that I don't have an iphone, but I seem to be able to fit all sorts into the belt.

Not Again!

The oat milk will also add to the fibre load...not quite the same, but since my 2 year old has started drinking oat milk she manages to poo three times a day!

It could be nerves, even if you don't think you are nervous, especially if you have trialled the food before, when training, without problems.
