Pain on the outside of your ankle? It could be a Peroneal injury.



What are Peroneal Injuries?

Peroneal injuries are a type of lower leg injury that affects the peroneal muscles and tendons. These injuries can range from sprains to tears, and can be caused by a number of factors, including overuse, overtraining, improper footwear, and a lack of warm-up or stretching.

Symptoms of Peroneal Injuries

The symptoms of peroneal injuries can vary depending on the type and severity of the injury. Some common symptoms include pain, swelling, and difficulty moving the ankle and foot. In some cases, you may also experience weakness, instability, and a loss of range of motion.
