After conserv. care: If you have had conservative care such as p.T. Or been immobilized in a cast and are not doing better, or the tendon is diagnosed as being ruptured, then surgery is advisable.

Depends on Location: Location depends on surgery. If the injury is in the ankle region, surgery may be more indicated, but in the foot, more physical therapy. Either way, exhaustive conservative treatments are usually the norm for peroneal injuries. Physical therapy is the mainstay of treatment, as well as boot immobilization and or splinting.

Torn: It may be necessary to have surgery if there is a tear or partial tear. I suggest an MRI and consult with your doctor.
