Tibialis posterior syndrome in Vancouver
The tibialis posterior muscle comes from behind the shin bone (tibia) and runs into a tendon that passes behind the bony bit on the inside of the ankle (medial malleolus). Inflammaion can occur around the medial malleolus and further down under the foot where the tendon attaches. If you over pronate you are more likely to suffer from this injury.
Patellofemoral Syndrome - Patellofemoral pain is a common knee problem. If you have this condition, you feel pain under and around your kneecap. The pain can get worse when you're active or when you sit for a long time. You can have the pain in one or both knees. The exact cause of patellofemoral pain isn't known. It probably has to do with the way your kneecap (patella) moves on the groove of your thigh bone (femur).
