Minimal fluid around the tendon sheath of the peroneus bervis and peroneus longus muscles suggestive for tenosynovitis what is the treatment?

Rest: Tendonitis is treated by relative rest (cease from all activities that give pain), physical therapy, and anti-inflammatories (ibuprofen, alleve). Sometimes immobilization is neede in a cast or boot. A cortisone shot if often helpful, but cannot be done in some areas of tendonitis. ...Read more

What is calcification at the insertion site of the Achilles tendon

Calcifications: Bone is living tissue and responds to stress esp. At the areas where tendon attaches to bone. Over time the bone reacts to the pull of the tendon and lays down bone...These are often called spurs by many. The spurs are not by themselves a problem...But if they break they can be difficult to quite down. So if there is no pain, make sure the joint has normal range of movement and just watch it. ...Read more
