Peroneal tendinopathy is a type of overuse injury commonly seen in athletes or those who have had ankle sprains. In this injury, the peroneal muscles (allows you to rotate your foot outward and point your toe), which are located on the outside of the calf become irritated and swollen.
Symptoms you may notice are:
- Aching and pain on the outside of the ankle
- Swelling or tenderness
- Weakness with activities that move the foot
- Pain when stretching the foot in an inward and downward direction
