I have Calcangal Valgus Posterior Tibial Tendon Dysfunction. Some questions asked here!?

I was wondering, since I have this problem. I've left it untreated for 3 years because my doc. kept saying it was just tendonitis. Then I switched to another one and I was given really good orthodics. This past year though my feet have been hurting again, I don't want surgery and the doctors can't do anything about it.
I was wondering, am I going to have arthiritis when i'm older? I researched that my tendons will eventually rupture. Is this true? What other things might happen to me? Will I be disabled or not be able to walk when i'm older? P.S; I am a teen.

Best Answer

The standard initial treatment is a good pair of custom made orthotics. The prefabricated or over-the counter type of foot orthotics are really not very satisfactory for posterior tibial tendon dysfunction. If the PTTD has progressed beyond a certain stage, then surgery is the only really satisfactory treatment.

Suggest you look at the resources here:

-- you must make an operation to balance the forces acting on your foot joints " 3 joints " because an disturbance at the function easly will make the osteoarthirits became early to the affected joint you must search for an experinced doctor for that
