I think there is no major upstream post tib issues. There is definitely downstream issues with the post tib tendon along my big toe. Smashed that with a soft ball and kettle bell. Still too soon to tell because it was so tendor that too much smashing would make things worse (something I learned along the way) A couple of more sessions I hope will do the trick.
I messed around with the band pulling my ankle out like you recommended as well. I can feel some relief, but nothing major. I retested with banded distraction with ankle dorsoflexion and it seemed to help.
All of this plays to the idea that I lean on my left leg a lot and perhaps I have jamming it up everytime. It almost feels like I should be lighter on my feet.
