The peroneal tendons can be a cause for pain on the outer side of the ankle. These tendons can develop tears, tendinitis or instability that results in a dislocation or clicking of the ankle on activity. Treatment would involve an ankle support and physiotherapy in mild cases. For persistent symptoms, a repair of the tear or reconstruction of the instability can be useful. In some cases of tendinitis or tears, minimally invasive tendoscopic therapy can also be used.
