Peroneus’ tendons longs and peroneus braves run to the foot from the muscles at the lateral calf. The muscles are involved in providing support to the ankle to prevent rolling of the joint and stabilising the foot. Tendinitis is due to overuse of or of the muscles inversion sprains which extend the muscles must work when it’s printed to stabilise the foot.
Leaping and running involve contraction of the muscles and may result in inflammation of the tendons. Runners who run on surfaces that are uneven or have excessive pronation often develop tendinitis.
Cause of injury
Over-pronation of the foot during leaping or running. Prior ankle injury leading.
Signs and symptoms
Pain and tenderness along the joints. Pain reduces as the activity persists and is severe at the start of the activity. Increase over time in pain.
Complications if left unattended
Tendinitis that is unattended may cause a rupture of the joints. Tendinitis may result in subluxations. The inflammation may cause damage to the ligaments.
Rest from jumping or running activities. Ice. Anti-inflammatory medication.
Rehabilitation and prevention
Stretching of the calf muscles and a slow reintroduction into action is essential for rehabilitation. During the recovery period, it’s important to recognize and fix. Prevention of the condition requires powerful muscles of the leg to support the ankle and the foot.
With good therapy, tendinitis will usually heal with no effects. In rare instances, the tendinitis might require surgical intervention to alleviate the pressure and may not respond to therapy. Orthotics to support the arch could be required sometimes.
