What are Peroneal Tendon Injuries?
There are two peroneal tendons in your foot, and they serve as connective tissue that attaches bone to muscle. These tendons stabilize the foot and ankle. Injuries to the tendons can be acute (sudden) or chronic (develop over time). There are three main types of peroneal tendon injuries: tendonitis, tendon tears, and subluxation.
Injuries are more likely to develop in individuals with high arches, and can also be caused by repetitive ankle motion in sports.
