Put an End to Your Ankle Pain at Pomona Valley Podiatry Group
If you are experiencing pain or swelling in the back of your ankle, then you may be suffering from peroneal tendinosis. Dr. O'Neill, our ankle specialist, can determine whether your pain is the result of peroneal tendinosis or another painful ankle condition. Once your pain has been properly diagnosed, Dr. O'Neill can then help you back on the road to recovery with treatment for peroneal tendinosis in Pomona, CA, and the La Verne and Claremont, CA, areas.
What Is Peroneal Tendinosis?
The peroneal tendon runs along the back of your ankle, connecting muscle to bone. Peroneal tendinosis happens when overuse or overexertion causes your peroneal tendon to thicken or swell. In the past, this type of problem has been misnamed peroneal tendinitis. However, since the tendon typically thickens and has not been invaded by inflammatory cells, tendinosis is the more correct term for this condition.
How Can You Treat Peroneal Tendinosis?
The good news is that surgery is rare for peroneal tendinosis. Dr. O'Neill often recommends a variety of conservative treatment approaches, including rest, an ankle brace, and – in painful cases – a walking boot. Dr. O'Neill can also analyze your footwear and exercise routine to identify ways to avoid a recurrence of your ankle pain in the future.
