posterior tibial tendinitis


I have been treated for posterior tibial tendinitis with physical therapy and orthotics and am now, running pain free again!
Do you think compression stockings are a good idea for this diagnosis?
Also do you think a rowing machine would put pressure on that tendon?
I tried it last week and the next day had twinges in my lower legs so I think that is my answer.


  1. Compression stockings probably won’t hurt to try. Some folks don’t like the feel, others don’t like the expense.As far as the rowing machine goes, if you were wearing your orthotics and still had the problem, then you probably should stay away from this activity. If you weren’t wearing your orthotics, then try that first.
