Treatment for Posterior Tibial Tendon Dysfunction (PTTD) using the Richie Brace AFO Patient discusses her treatment for stage II posterior tibial tendon dysfunction (PTTD) using the Richie Brace AFO. *******www.richiebrace**** Posterior Tibial Tendon Dysfunction (PTTD) is a painful flatfoot condition which affects adults, primarily over the age of 50. Also known as Adult Acquired Flatfoot, this pathology affects women more than men and is linked to obesity, hypertension and diabetes. Most people with PTTD have had flat feet all of their lives. Then, for reasons not fully understood, one foot starts to become painful and more deformed. PTTD begins with a gradual stretching and loss of strength of the posterior tibial tendon which is the most important tendon supporting the arch of the human foot. Left untreated, this tendon will continue to lengthen and eventually rupture, leading to a progressive visible collapse of the arch of the foot. In the early stages, patients with PTTD will notice a pain and swelling along the inner ankle and arch. Many times, they are diagnosed with tendonitis of the inner ankle. If the foot and ankle are not properly supported during this early phase, the posterior tibial tendon can rupture and devastating consequences will occur to the foot and ankle structure. The progressive adult acquired flatfoot deformity will cause the heel to roll inward in a valgus or pronated direction while the forefoot will rotate outward causing a duckfooted walking pattern. Eventually, significant arthritis can occur in the joints of the foot, the ankle and even the knee. The Richie Brace® has been successfully prescribed for over 20,000 patients with PTTD over the past 7 years. The custom contoured footplate and the orientation of the leg uprights of the Richie Brace® are ideally suited to control the abnormal pronation forces occurring with PTTD. Most patients find the lightweight, low-profile design of the Richie Brace® to be far more comfortable than traditional long leg solid shell ankle foot orthoses. Thus the Richie Brace® has now become the preferred method of non-surgical treatment of PTTD by foot and ankle specialists.

Achilles tendonitis - NYC Podiatrist Manhattan and White Plains, NY Dr. Donna M. Hartmann discusses the symptoms, causes and treatments for Achilles tendonitis. *******www.adlerfootcare**** Events that can cause Achilles tendonitis may include: • Hill running or stair climbing. • Overuse, stemming from the natural lack of flexibility in the calf muscles. • Rapidly increasing mileage or speed when walking, jogging, or running. • Starting up too quickly after a layoff in exercise or sports activity, without adequately stretching and warming up the foot. • Trauma caused by sudden and/or hard contraction of the calf muscles when putting out extra effort, such as in a sprint. • Improper footwear and/or a tendency toward overpronation. Achilles tendonitis often begins with mild pain after exercise or running that gradually worsens. Other symptoms include: • Recurring localized pain, sometimes severe, along the tendon during or a few hours after running. • Morning tenderness about an inch and a half above the point where the Achilles tendon is attached to the heel bone. • Sluggishness in your leg. • Mild or severe swelling. • Stiffness that generally diminishes as the tendon warms up with use. Treatment normally includes: • A bandage specifically designed to restrict motion of the tendon. • Taking nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medication for a period of time.Note: Please consult your physician before taking any medication. • Orthotics, which are corrective shoe inserts designed to help support the muscle and relieve stress on the tendon. Both non-prescriptionorthoses(such as a heel pads or over-the-counter shoe inserts) and prescribed custom orthotics may be recommended depending on the length and severity of the problem. • Rest and switching to exercises that do not stress the tendon (such as swimming). • Stretching and exercises to strengthen the weak muscle group in front of the leg, calf, and the upward foot flexors, as well as massage and ultrasound. In extreme cases, surgery is performed to remove the fibrous tissue and repair any tears. Visit our website: *******www.adlerfootcare****

Achilles Tendonitis Treatment - Manahawkin, Barnegat, Little Egg Harbor, NJ Dr. Eric Baskin of Stafford Orthopedics discusses the symptoms, causes and treatments for Achilles Tendonitis. *******www.manahawkinfootdoctor**** The Achilles tendon is the largest tendon in the human body and can withstand forces of 1,000 pounds or more. It also is the most frequently ruptured tendon, usually as a result of a sports injury. Both professional and weekend athletes may suffer from Achilles tendonitis, a common overuse injury and inflammation of the tendon.
