Aircast PTTD Ankle Brace

What is Posterior Tibial Dysfunction? (“Acquired Flatfoot”)

When someone loses the function of his or her posterior tibialis tendon (a tendon that passes under the ankle and lifts the arch of your foot), he or she will most likely develop posterior tibial dysfunction. The tendon can tear from injury, can suffer from tendinitis, or can include muscle dysfunction. Once the tendon is damaged, the result will often be a loss of support for the foot’s arch and a flatfoot deformity. The flatfoot is correctable, but if ignored, a permanent deformity may result.

Classification of Tibialis Posterior Dysfunction and Clinical Presentation There are various classification systems available for PTT dysfunction. According to Hutchinson and O’Rourke (1995) and Landorf (1997), the various stages in the pathological development of TPD can be categorised. They are as follows:

Stage 1 ­ Primarily an asymptomatic stage. Generally there is an underlying biomechanical fault that may predispose any symptomatology.

Stage 2 -This is the initial symptomatic stage. At this stage posterior tibial tendonitis is the major symptom. Only a mild weakness is present.

Stage 3 ­ During this stage there is significant dysfunction of the tendon. This can be the result of a tear, attenuation or partial rupturing of the tendon. Patients are generally presenting with mid foot pronating and the forefoot abducting.

Stage 4 ­ This is the end stage of development of the disorder. There is a rapid progression of the above mentioned symptoms. Movement is severely restricted due to the rigidity of the condition.

Great product, comfortable to wear Review by Brad
Customer Reviews:
Recently diagnosed with PTTD, the first support brace offered by podiatrist office was uncomfortable and caused more pain. The AirCast brace offers a more comfortable fit hands down. Easy to adjust the arch support with the provided air pump, simple to wear and remove. (Posted on 7/23/14)

great product, poor materials Review by Eos in VT
Customer Reviews:
I am on my third AirCast. If I didn't like it I would not keep buying it, but although you have fixed some of the original problems,like the plastic on the bottom which cracked, the semi-rigid ankle stabilizers want to wear through the the bottom of the pockets they are in. It protrudes just enough at the bottom to rub against the inside of the shoe. Maybe it should come with a sock of some sort to put over the brace to decrease the friction. I have had to repair them with duct tape to prevent the plastic pieces from pushing their way out. (Posted on 12/17/13)
