tibialis muscles

tibialis muscles

occupy the anterior and posterior compartments of the lower leg with tendons extending into the foot: tibialis anterior (dorsiflexion) and posterior (plantarflexion and inversion). Acute inflammation, usually the result of overuse, results in the so-called tibialis syndrome where swelling in the tight compartment causes pain and tenderness on specific movements. Treatment is of the inflammation and of any identified cause such as overpronation. See also compartment syndrome.
