BACKGROUND Various tendinopathies occur about the ankle, but there are few publications investigating their etiology or pathoanatomy. The purpose of this investigation was to determine the gliding resistance of the tendons about the posteromedial ankle: the posterior tibial (PT), flexor digitorum longus (FDL), and flexor hallucis longus (FHL) tendons. MATERIALS AND METHODS The gliding abilities of the posterior tibial, flexor digitorum longus, and flexor hallucis longus tendons at the ankle… CONTINUE READING
