Ankle Muscle Tendinopathies

Ankle Muscle Tendinopathies (also known as Peroneal Tendonitis or Peroneal Tendinopathy) refers to the changes to the Peroneal tendon in the ankle due to overuse of the peroneal muscles. 

What are Ankle Muscle Tendinopathies?

The peroneal muscles are on the outside of your lower leg. They turn the foot out and provide stability to the ankle during weight-bearing. The peroneal tendons wrap around the lateral malleolus (the bony lump on the outer ankle) and attach to different areas on your foot. Every time the peroneal muscles contract, tension is placed on the tendons.

If more tension or load is placed on the peroneal tendon, this can cause inflammation or swelling in the tendon, which is Ankle Muscle Tendinopathy.
