Today I was talking with a runner who has been diagnosed with a longitudinal split of the peroneus brevis tendon.
The concern with this kind of tear in the peroneal tendon is that if you can’t get it to calm down, it can only get worse.
Continually moving, irritating and producing inflammation in and around injured peroneal tendons just causes them to get weaker over time.
Many surgeons are quick to offer surgery to correct the problem.
This runner wanted to know the details of all the different treatment options when a runner gets diagnosed with a longitudinal split of the peroneus brevis tendon.
Today on the Doc on the Run podcast, we’re talking about the 5 choices runners have when there is a split or tear in the peroneus brevis tendon.
Today’s topic comes from a longtime listener named Jenny. She wrote a really nice review that I wanted to share with you.
She said, “If you are a runner, you need to listen. What I love about Doc On The Run Podcasts is that each one covers one topic, is short, sharp, full of useful practical information that you can apply right away without having to go and do more reading or research.”
She also asked, “Would you consider doing an episode on return to running after an accident and how to overcome the fact that everyone tells you that you should not run, even when your surgeons and physios have said that it is safe for you to run and really good for you to exercise?”
Thank you Jenny! And yes, that is a great idea for a topic!
