Inside ankle pain
Do you ever feel an aching pain around your ankle or even up into your shin? Or do you feet feel weak or your arch is getting lower?
The most common cause of pain around the inside of the ankle or shin is what is a condition called posterior tibial tendinopathy – don’t you hate long medical names 😉 This name is often shortened to PTTD & following the KISS principle (Keep It Simple Stupid), it’s a strained tendon that can become sore on the inside of the shin, under the inside ankle or side of foot. It commonly occurs when your foot has collapsed under your arch.
Now trying to “fix” this yourself is difficult but the most important tip is – GET NEW, SUPPORTIVE SHOES. This will help support your foot & ankle & reduce strain on the tendon.
