Peroneal Tendon Strain

The two peroneal tendons in the foot run side by side behind the outer ankle bone. Peroneal tendon injuries may be sudden caused by trauma or develop over time due repetitive ankle motion and overuse. Players with higher arches are at risk for developing peroneal tendon injuries causing pain and swelling. Peroneal tears cause weakness or instability of the foot and ankle.
