What is Peroneal Tendonitis?
Peroneal tendonitis describes an inflammation of the peroneal tendons. This occurs when the tendons suffer an increased load and lots of use, leading to them rubbing on the bone.
The friction caused by rubbing on the bones leads to swelling in the tendons. Over a period of time, the tendons will thicken in an attempt to manage the increased load.
Peroneal tendonitis commonly occurs in athletes, specifically in runners, as they roll their feet outwards more often, causing friction between the tendon and bone and increasing the risk of a sprain.
