What is peroneal tendonitis

What is peroneal tendonitis?

The Peroneal tendons run down the back of the calf, past the outside of the ankle and then split into two. One of the tendons then goes to the base of the little toe, and the other to the outside of the big toe. The tendons pull the foot and toes downwards, allowing you to turn your foot outwards. Peroneal Tendonitis is the inflammation of these tendons, causing pain around the back and outside of the foot.

What causes peroneal tendonitis?

As the peroneal tendons can become irritated through overuse, this injury is common amongst people who play a lot of sports. Those with high arches or displaced heels (hindfoot varus) are also at risk as this places additional stress on these tendons.
