Common causes include excessive pressure within one muscle compartment as a result of muscular overexertion. In addition, it can involve a periostal inflammation due to a functional overexertion of the m. tibialis posterior.
So far, scientists have identified two biomechanical causes for this classic overexertion syndrome. Patients exhibit an overly flat foot (pes planovalgus), often in combination with an inward tilting of the heel bone (eversion).
Both irregularities can be addressed in different ways with the BlackBoard.
