How to Mend Your Peroneal Tendinitis
The Peroneal tendons are two major cord-like tendons in the foot that run together behind the outside of the ankle. These particular tendons provide essential stability for the ankle and the back of the foot while preventing the foot and ankle from turning inwards or spraining (this action would cause an inversion ankle sprain).

What Causes Peroneal Tendinitis?
Peroneal tendon injuries may occur due to acute injury or repetitive motion during sports-related activities. Individuals with high arches or those who have experienced an inversion ankle sprain are also susceptible to Peroneal tendon injuries.
What Symptoms Should You Expect
The degree of injury may range from an irritated tendon, to a tear, or even a complete degeneration of your Peroneal tendons. If you have Peroneal tendinitis you will most likely experience pain, swelling and inflammation on the outside of your ankle. A more serious tear or degenerative condition of the Peroneal tendons will cause instability or weakness in your ankle. Extreme pain and instability of the Peroneal tendons may indicate that your Peroneal tendons have slipped out of their normal place (or become dislocated). In this case you would notice a snapping feeling around the outside of your ankle.
What Treatments are Available to Mend Your Peroneal Tendinitis
Tendon injuries typically require longer healing processes because tendons are tough, dense tissues that normally receive very little blood flow. In some cases of Peroneal tendinitis an individual may have a degenerative condition that should not be left untreated. Serious Peroneal tendon injuries that are not properly rehabilitated will increase the instability of the ankle. Even with optimal healing there is always less elasticity in a previously injured tendon.
It is best to heal any tendon injury with minimal scar tissue formation and as much realignment of the fibers in the tendon as possible; which can be accomplished through Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy.
As soon as your soft tissue is injured your body triggers natural events that isolate damaged tissue and prepare it for healing. The main symptoms you will immediately feel after injury - the swelling, redness (rubor), heat (calor), pain (dolor), and loss of function - are really just signs that your body is starting to heal.
Unfortunately when your soft tissue is swollen and inflamed the damaged tissue is blocking vital blood flow from coming into to continue the natural healing process. When your blood flow is blocked, the other healthy tissue in your body is starved of oxygen, nutrients and antibodies needed for your healthy tissue to thrive and for your injured meniscus to heal. This is why it's never good to let a new injury stay untreated for too long.
Using cold compression immediately following a soft tissue tear, re-injury, or surgery reduces pain and swelling and reduces the tissue damage that occurs with soft tissue injuries.
Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy
What can be done for your soft tissue when the swelling is gone, but the pain is still there? Once the swelling is gone our bodies are starving for the naturally occurring oxygen, nutrients, antibodies and energy available in our blood. Blood flow is like the life force of our bodies, and the healing process really takes off only when injured soft tissue receives proper blood flow.
If you want to heal quickly you need to keep your blood flow moving constantly, but you also need to make sure your body is actively getting rid of cellular waste and toxins. This is where BFST® comes in, but what exactly is BFST® and how can it help to accelerate healing?
BFST® is exactly what it seems - it's a therapy that substantially increases the flow of blood to your soft tissue without the need to exercise your already damaged tissue.
Think about your injured soft tissue as if it is a sponge that has dried out. Your damaged tissue is waiting there ready to absorb all of the benefits of increased blood flow but your body is unable to keep up with the demand of what your tissue needs. BFST® boosts your body's natural blood flow, delivering oxygen, nutrients, antibodies and energy directly to the source of your pain. Once you start receiving all of the benefits BFST® has to offer your injured soft tissue becomes like a sponge that now has enough blood flow within reach to soak up everything good that is in your blood flow. Increased blood flow through BFST® also acts as a cleanser for your tissue, whisking away all toxins and cellular waste.

When is Surgery an Option & What Surgical Prodcedures Mend Peroneal Tendinitis?
There are a few surgical procedures that may be performed in order to heal various degrees of Peroneal tendon injuries: tendon repair, tendon release and tendon debridement.
A Tendon Repair is a procedure that a surgeon may conduct in order to repair a Peroneal tendon if you have "Tendonosis", chronic degeneration of the Peroneal tendon. The surgeon will make a small incision into the tendon sheath (the tissue encasing the Peroneal tendon), and will either remove the damaged portion of the tendon or will repair the tendon with stitches or sutures.
This is a surgical procedure that is performed if you have "Tensynovitis", inflammation to the tendon sheath encasing the Peroneal tendons rather than the tendon itself. During this procedure the surgeon will make a small incision into the tendon sheath which allows him/her to remove any damaged tissue.
This is a procedure that consists of a thorough removal (or debride) or all degenerated tissue in the Peroneal tendon injury.
