Peroneal Tendon Subluxation

The peroneal retinaculum is a thin band of tissue that helps hold the peroneal tendons behind the fibula at the outside of the ankle.  There are actually two distinct peroneal retinaculums; the “superior peroneal retinaculum” and the “inferior peroneal retinaculum.” The one you actually care about if you’re having popping and clicking and pain at the outside of the ankle is the superior peroneal retinaculum.

Broken Toes

Broken Toes are Common 
As a sports medicine podiatrist in San Francisco, I believe there are more broken toes then stress fractures. Broken toes are not only common but they are often mistreated.

There is also a common misconception that “if you can walk on the foot, the toe is can’t be broken.” This is simply not true.

Because of this, a ganglion cysts is always a little mass attached to or extending from a joint or tendon sheath.
