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.
