What will my doctor do for peroneal tendonitis?

I have had problems with pain in my ankle for almost 4 weeks, and a friend told me that I probably had peroneal tendonitis. I am going to the doctor tomorrow, and I was wondering what my treatment would be? Will I need surgery since I have had it for so long now? Will I need my ankle to be immobilized in a cast or boot? Thanks!

How is it that when I stretch my peroneal muscles I can feel the stretch way down into my heel?

And into the ligaments in the heel? Does the muscle run all the way down there? Thanks.
So if its the peroneal tendons that I feel pulling in the heel, then why did I pull a ligament? Is it because the ligament runs under the peroneal tendons?

There are 3 peroneal muscles - peroneus longus, brevis, tertius. What you're feeling is both longus and brevis to your heel. The longus and brevis go all the way down to the outside of your heel. Longus continues and wraps underneath the heel to the base of your 1st toe. Brevis continues to the base of your 5th toe.  (+ info)

Does Corticosteriod injection to the Peroneal area to relieve the pressure, Does it really works?

Will it come back or return to normal after few weeks or it will subsidice?

how does it works?

If they believe it is due to inflammation, yes. Corticosteroids are anti-inflammatories. They work by modifying the immune response of the body to diverse stimuli. Since inflammation is the result of the immune system trying to fix a problem, using a corticosteroid to change the response reduces inflammation. Sometimes inflammation can go out of control due to the mechanism in the body known as positive feedback. It's like when you have a high fever that won't break, the body is working hard to get rid of the bacteria and it keeps raising the body temperature to the point where medical intervention is needed to implement negative feedback to bring things back under control. Inflammation that is gone awry can cause more inflammation if the immune system doesn't think it has taken care of the initial problem. By changing the response of the immune system and restoring homeostasis, the inflammation will decrease and when the immune system is given the reigns back it hopefully won't continue to work on the same area by increasing the inflammation to fix the problem the immune system perceives. It could come back if the immune system thinks there is still a problem, an injury, foreign body, or infection could all cause the inflammation to come back. If the tissue is damaged, the immune system works to try to fix the damage and sometimes the damage cannot be fixed without surgery. You can get corticosteroid injections when the symptoms return, but if it isn't fixed cellularly then the inflammation will come back. The adverse effects of long term use of corticosteroids can include infection, due to suppression of the immune system, impaired skin healing, fluid retention, depression, and other effects that are undesirable and should be discussed with the physician if they worry you. Your legs take a beating so inflammation in that area doesn't surprise me. Hopefully one course is all you need to correct the problem. Good luck!  (+ info)

Can you still bike with strained peroneal tendons?

I can't run on it still, doing the RICE method. Avid runner, but sidelined by this ridiculous foot injury. Wondering if you can bike - and not just bike flats, but hills in particular. Wondering if biking hills will affect the region, slow rehab?

you are going to injure yourself more which means you are going to be sidelined for a longer time. relax and just wait until you feel better. dont be dumb and re-injure yourself more.  (+ info)

I have acute Peroneal Tendon Subluxation. What are the chances for a non-surgical recovery?

This occurred from an ankle injury 1 week ago and I have been in a walking cast for 6 days.

Physical Therapy and/or massage and chiropractic treatment could help. The main issue (once you are out of your cast) is the question of stability. Meaning, do you feel the tendons popping or snapping when you move through the range of motion of the ankle. If think with the right rehab you would be ok. For long term strengthening of the ankle check into yoga.  (+ info)

I have damaged my peroneal nerve, does anyone know how long it takes to heal?

I broke my tib fib that is how it happened. I do not have foot drop though I just have numbness and pins and needles.

it really varies on recovery time from nerve injuries. There are a lot of different things that come into play. It depends of if there is an actually nerve lesion (if it was cut or crushed), or if it's just due to residual swelling around the area from where the frature is/was. if the nerve was cut, it probably won't get any better, unfortunately nerve cells don't regenerate, but if it wasn't then it will get better eventually.
the fact that you don't have drop foot is a good sign, it means that the nerve hasn't been severed. it sounds to me like you have some "nerve pinching" happening somewhere along the nerve path that interupting the signal from the brain to the affected area.  (+ info)

Is there any alternative treatments for pain management in scoliosis and/or axilary neuropathies?

You can often get short-term pain relief for scoliosis from a chiropractor or massage therapist. I've used both. Short-term means a few days to a few weeks.

Long-term or permanent relief requires addressing the real problem of scoliosis, which is muscle imbalances. Some muscles on one side of the scoliotic back are stronger and tighter than the opposing group, alternating sides at three or four levels of the back. Exercise therapy offers the most viable solution, but unfortunately there aren't many specialists for this outside Germany, and doctors will tell you it doesn't work. (They are wrong, and can't prove their case.)

The Schroth method is exercise therapy developed in Germany in the 1920s. There are a couple big German clinics devoted to it. There are a few small Schroth clinics in the US now, started by physical therapists who got specially trained. Even a non-Schroth-trained physiotherapist ought to be able to help you if she/he is smart and specializes in spinal issues. If the first PT doesn't pan out, or gives you exercises that hurt, drop her and try another.

There was a very good article on Schroth treatment of scoliosis pain published in 1993 but it's not indexed online. See Sources below.  (+ info)

I had peroneal tendon surgery when will I be able to walk again normally?

Will I ever dare ski again? I am also very bored and feel like I am stuck at home because I have so many stairs leading to my house and I am scared of them. Give me ideas to keep busy while on crutches.

I know how you feel. I was on a walker for 3 months . I have a rod, pin plate in my leg. after that is healed yes you will be able to walk normally and run, and do what you did before. in the mean time. try and find a hobby that you can do. and don't be afraid of the stairs, that might be good exercise for you. you don't want to baby your leg. because it will hurt worse if it gets stiff. good luck.  (+ info)
