Managing Tibialis Posterior Tendinopathy
The next AICE Sports & Exercise webinar, titled Managing Tibialis Posterior Tendinopathy , will be held Wednesday 23 June 2021 and will be presented by physiotherapist Dr Megan Ross.
Tibialis posterior tendinopathy is characterised by pain on the medial aspect of the foot and ankle that increases with activities that load the tendon (eg. a heel raise). This presentation will give an overview of clinical tests used to diagnose the condition, presenting impairments, limitations and restrictions and evidence-based management approaches for tibialis posterior tendinopathy.
- Understand the clinical tests for tibialis posterior tendinopathy and the relationship to structural changes on imaging;
- Understanding of key impairments, limitations and restrictions associated with the condition;
- Understanding of evidence-based management approaches for tibialis posterior tendinopathy.
Dr Megan Ross
Megan Ross is a postdoctoral fellow at RECOVER Injury Research Centre, the University of Queensland. She is part of a research team, led by Professor Trevor Russell, which focuses on developing more effective and efficient health services supported by technology innovation. Megan’s current research projects include exploring consumer perspectives of the telerehabilitation service delivery model, the impact of rapid transitions to telerehabilitation in the clinical education and hospital environment and exploring the acceptability and usability of a gamified mobile application for exercise prescription adherence.
Megan is a physiotherapist and early career researcher who completed her PhD in the School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences at the University of Queensland. Her PhD explored the clinical presentation of tibialis posterior tendinopathy and was the first to investigate the reliability of common clinical tests for tibialis posterior tendinopathy and their relationship with structural tendon changes on imaging. In addition to her current research areas of interest at RECOVER, Megan is interested in the experience of LGBTQIA+ and other vulnerable populations, including veterans, accessing and utilising health care.
