Tendonitis Stretches: Peroneal Edition

Tendonitis is a medical condition that refers to when a person’s tendon (tissue that attaches a person’s muscle to a bone) is inflamed. It is a common condition that affects people who overuse certain areas of their body, particularly those who complete repetitive motions over a long period of time. Peroneal Tendonitis refers to micro-tears that occur in the tendons that attach a person’s calf muscles to their foot. If left untreated for a long time, Peroneal Tendonitis may be dealt with surgically, but luckily for those with this issue, there are stretches that can help alleviate the pain and discomfort associated with this condition. Click here for a list of four tendonitis stretches that will have you good as new in no time.
