The peroneal tendons attach the peroneal muscles to the outer ankle bone. These tendons can become inflamed due to overuse or overpronation causing the rubbing of the tendon on the lateral malleolus, and resulting in Peroneal Tendonitis.
What is it?
Peroneal Tendonitis is irritation and inflammation of the peroneal tendons.
Common Signs & Symptoms:
Common symptoms of peroneal tendonitis include pain and swelling on the outside of the ankle, and increased pain with activity or with the application of pressure on the peroneal tendons.
Common assessment techniques involve evaluating pain levels and location, noticeable swelling of the peroneal tendon area, and testing of strength and range of motion limitations.
