Ankle Tendonitis is very common among active individuals. One of the primary
sites for ankle Tendonitis involves the Posterior Tibialis Tendon, located on the inside
part of the ankle just behind the bony knob. This tendon is responsible for raising the
arch of the foot. People who have "flat feet" or who's feet tend to collapse in
("overpronators"), may experience pain and swelling along the inside of their
foot or ankle..

Tendonitis (also spelled tendinitis) is an inflammation of a tendon.
Generally tendonitis is referred to by the body part involved, such as Achillies
tendonitis (inflammation of the Achilles tendon), or patellar tendonitis
(jumper's knee; inflammation of the patellar tendon). Chronic overuse of tendons
leads to microscopic tears within the collagen matrix, which gradually weakens
the tissue. Tendonitis can also be associated with systemic inflammatory
diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis.
