    Thank you. I suffered shin splints over the years, so painful. All these techniques have been a huge help.

  • aphroditedaphnisatc

    Kinesio tape re-educates the neuromuscular system, reduces pain, enhances performance, prevents injury, and promotes improved circulation and healing. To enhance its effects, it is advised that the taping be applied during therapeutic exercises; the tape alone will not strengthen the posterior tibialis muscle.

    What type of results does this have for long term increase in function of the post tibialis? Seems like everyday taping would be a “band-aid” unless it can increase activation and decrease overall length of the tendon. Thanks for the video

  • sb6bb

    Thanks for the comment

  • sb6bb

    Keep your head up and keep looking for answers!

  • sb6bb

    Sorry to hear. Go see an active release provider. They are usually good at identifying the cause… sometimes it can be a different problem. #anklepain #shinpain

  • sb6bb

    Ill take a look. On other note use of a musculoskeletal ultrasound will help find small issues in the tendon which may be overlooked by an MRI. #posteriortibialis #shinsplints

  • sb6bb

    Thanks for the comment. I have not actually hear of Bob… I feel most people think a stretch will address the problem but sometimes the issue is strength. WD40 or Duct tape analogy… #PTTD #tibialisposterior

  • sb6bb

    The exercise are usually on going… like changing the oil in a car… the reason is the tendon will more than likely continue to elongate after micro trauma… in my opinion this happens after people stop addressing their body’s issues… strength, flexibility, or whatever it might be

    Thanks for the video. I’ve been deprived of running for over 6 months now because of PTT. It’s finally gotten better but it’s not 100%. Could you estimate how long I’d need to do these exercises before I get back to tip top shape so I can start running again? Thanks.

  • Molly Hahn

    Hey there, I think I might have PTT for the first time, real bummer. Really loved this video though. Going to do those exercises while I rest…btw, are you inspired by Bob Cooley (noticed the resistance exercise). Thanks! -Molly Hahn

    What do you think of this rehab program from a peer-reviewed journal article – this is for the more advanced posterior tibial tendon dysfunction, but before the tendon ruptures. Oh, I can’t put a URL here, but google “foot education” and non-operative protocol for flat foot deformity. Author is Alvarez, I believe.

  • Matthew Piva

    I’ve had mine for 5 months, and it still hasn’t healed

  • sb6bb

    You’re correct… the starting position on this exercise is not correct but I tend to think most of the fix is with the last bit of the exercise range (or the stretch) so the end position is correct. Good eye!

  • Greg Wellman

    Posterior tibialis plantarflexes and inverts the foot; you might want to modify your eccentric exercise.

  • Divye Gupta

    Actually I just had a sudden sprain in my Peterior Tendon while walking. I’m pretty sure that is because of excessive running. I’m not even able to walk properly, hope this gets better soon. Thanks so much man!

  • sb6bb

    Glad it helpped. I can’t comment on your condition since I do not know what you have (I haven’t seen you before) but most mild post tib issues require balance exercises and attention from someone skilled in soft tissue treatment. It is part of the deep posterior compartment of the calf and is not easy to stretch etc. Active Release is a good option and will work quickly if it will at all. Terrible condition and good luck

  • Divye Gupta

    Thanks man! This really helped me. A few more questions please.
    Should I take any medicine with it?
    Complete rest is suggested or I can still do walking, cross-trainer, cycling?
    And do I need to tie my ankle for the rest of the time?

  • sarah60625

    am a big fan! thanks

  • sb6bb

    Thanks buddy!

  • ihajeeorbis

    awesome clip dude!

  • sb6bb

    Thanks. Ya I have been brainstorming on some options to handle this condition but it one of the tougher ones. Thanks for the feedback!

  • sb6bb

    Thanks so much. Please share to others!

  • 1Chickita79

    Your videos age great! Thank you!

  • Joshua Dotson

    Fantastic post. I’m a non-practicing physical therapist, and I commonly run in minimalist shoes. All was fine until I ran in a pair that had a built up lateral side, which allowed more pronation and straining the post tib over a 10 mile trail run. The reaching exercise you have developed seems to make the most sense to me.

  • sb6bb

    Thanks!

  • ihajeeorbis

    Great vid dude you rock!!

  • sb6bb

    No problem.. good luck!
