Nonsurgical Approach in Management of Tibialis Posterior Tendinopathy With Combined Radial Shockwave and Foot Core Exercises: A Case Series.


Tibialis posterior tendinopathy is a common debilitating condition seen by foot and ankle providers. Non-operative management is difficult as patients often present in later stages of the disease. This case series evaluated the combination of radial shockwave therapy and a foot core progression exercise regimen on 10 patients who had failed standard conservative treatment techniques. Median follow-up time was 4 months. Clinically important differences in the Foot and Ankle Ability Measure were met in 9 (90%) and 8 (80%) of patients for activities of daily living and sport sub-scores, respectively. No adverse effects were observed.
