#478 Can a blister on the big toe cause peroneal tendinitis?

I just got a great question from somebody who said he went rock climbing over the weekend, and he got a huge blister on his big toe from his climbing shoes. He didn’t really complain that much about the blister, in fact, he’d even been running. But then he said he was getting peroneal tendonitis. He was having this pain on the outside of the ankle where the peroneal tendons go down around the back of the fibula bone. He wanted to know if it was somehow related to the blister on the big toe. Can a blister on the big toe caused peroneal tendonitis? Well, that’s what we’re talking about today on the Doc On The Run podcast.

#441 Blister causes in runners

This episode actually comes from a visit with a runner where I was asked to check her foot.

This runner happens to also be a physician.

She assumed that she was having plantar fasciitis because she had some pain in her heel when she was running, and after her run, she would have a little bit of pain when she was just walking around.

Because she was having this occasional weird twinge of heel pain, she asked me to see what I could figure out.

Today on the Doc On The Run Podcast, we’re talking about how you really need to check your shoes whenever you have pain from running.
