Abstract

Tibialis posterior tendon injuries are commonly missed and can result in significant foot deformity. In the young athlete these are best diagnosed acutely with ultrasound and may be treated conservatively or operatively. We present the case of a young serviceman and describe the treatment plan that was successful in allowing an early return to exercise.
