Peroneal longus is the muscle
that generally connects the foot bones with the calf bones. This music offers
support to the foot and is also involved in moving your foot outwards and
downwards. Unfortunately, due to the long course, the superficial anatomical
placement and function of the peroneal longus are most commonly injured.
This injury can have acute
damage or show up in the form of a long and chronic procedure. These kinds of
damages are most commonly observed in athletes who overuse the muscles and keep
doing repetitive movements in their ankles. Some of the most common injuries in
the peroneal tendon include inflammation, subluxation and tears. How to Treat?
In case you are experiencing
swelling or pain in the ankle, you need to get yourself checked by a good
doctor immediately. Once you have made a complete assessment of the condition
and the doctors have done the X-ray. They will also create the treatment plan,
which will help the plan to get started.
However, you have to make
sure that the patient gets complete bed rest to manage the condition. There are
chances that the doctors offer anti-inflammatory medicines that can be helpful
for the condition.
However, when patients fail
to respond and show signs of improvement, there might be a need for surgery.
Surgical reconstruction can be the only way to improve mobility and take care
of the condition. With the top doctors efficient in serving their best, we
