A two pillar approach to treatment consisting of offloading and then strengthening, is imperative.
Firstly, identifying and eradicating the causative factor/s, then supporting the foot with valgus wedging at both the rearfoot and forefoot, is essential. The Emily Braidwood insoles are uniquely engineered to support the outside foot, from heel to toe, to offload both the peroneus longus and brevis from heel strike to toe off. This will offload the tendon to help resolve the inflammation and prevent reoccurrence.
Undertaking physiotherapy to progressively strengthen and condition the peroneal muscles, as well as the calf muscles, ensures the muscle can produce the required force and maintain endurance, thus protecting the tendon.
Sometimes a tear of the tendon can be present, so if pain persists, seek imaging and medical assessment.
