Tibialis Posterior Muscle

Leg

What is Tibialis Posterior Muscle?

The tibialis posterior is a muscle located in the lower leg. Its contraction helps maintain the arch of your foot and contributes to the movement of your ankle.

The tibialis posterior is a thick, triangular muscle that sits on the inside of your ankle. It originates at the top of the fibula (a lateral bone in your lower leg), extends down to attach to the bottom of your foot, and inserts into the medial cuneiform bone.

The tibialis posterior helps with dorsiflexion (raising your toes toward your shin) and eversion (rolling your foot outward). It also works with other muscles in order to stabilize your ankle joint when you stand on one leg or walk.

What are the types of Tibialis Posterior Muscle?

The Tibialis Posterior Muscle has two divisions: superficial and lateral.

  • The superficial division covers most of your lower leg and supports its weight when you’re walking or standing up from a sitting position.
  • The lateral division extends along your outer shinbone and helps you rotate your foot outward when you’re walking.

What causes Tibialis Posterior Muscle pain?

Tibialis Posterior Muscle pain is caused by a number of different issues, including overuse, trauma and/or injury.

The most common cause of Tibialis Posterior Muscle pain is overuse. In this case, the muscle becomes inflamed and swollen due to excessive use. This can happen when you put too much stress on your foot while walking or running, or if you have poor posture while sitting or standing for long periods of time.

Another common cause of Tibialis Posterior Muscle pain is trauma. This can occur when you step on something sharp or uneven, such as a rock or piece of glass, which causes an injury to the muscle tissue. It can also happen if you suffer from an ankle sprain or fracture that affects the area around your heel bone.

In some cases, Tibialis Posterior Muscle pain may be caused by underlying medical conditions such as diabetes mellitus or peripheral neuropathy (nerve damage).

What are the symptoms if you sprain your Tibialis Posterior Muscle?

If you sprain your Tibialis Posterior Muscle, you might notice pain and swelling in the ankle and heel.

The symptoms can include:

  • Pain on the inside of the ankle and heel
  • Swelling of the ankle and heel
  • If you think you’ve sprained this muscle, it’s important to seek medical attention as soon as possible.

What are the exercises for strengthening Tibialis Posterior Muscle?

The tibialis posterior muscle is one of the muscles located in your lower leg. It assists in lifting the foot and maintaining balance when walking, running, or jumping. When this muscle becomes weak or injured it can cause problems with walking and standing

Exercises for strengthening the Tibialis Posterior Muscle:

Eccentric Strength Training

This type of exercise involves contracting a muscle while it lengthens. This type of training helps to improve flexibility and strength at the same time which is great for runners because it prevents injury.

Isokinetic Training

This type of training involves working out at a set speed without changing resistance levels so you can work on strengthening specific muscles without having to adjust weights during each repetition like with weightlifting exercises.

Stretching

Stretching can help improve flexibility which will make it easier for you to get around without pain or injury if there is any weakness in those areas due to overuse or lack of use (such as sitting all day).

What are the treatments for injured Tibialis Posterior Muscle?

There are a few different treatments for injured Tibialis Posterior Muscles.

The first is rest. If you have an acute injury, resting your Tibialis Posterior Muscle will help it heal faster.

Another treatment is ice and compression. Applying ice to your injured Tibialis Posterior Muscle will help with swelling and pain, and compressing the area can help reduce swelling as well.

The third treatment is physical therapy. Physical therapists can help you strengthen your Tibialis Posterior Muscle after an injury by doing exercises specific to the muscle group, as well as stretches that will help improve flexibility in your hip and ankle joint regions so that they can move properly again when walking or running around on your feet all day long!
