I have a longitudinal peroneal brevis tendon split. Pain is on the opposite side of the ankle. Why?

I have a longitudinal peroneal brevis tendon split. Pain is on the opposite side of the ankle. Why?

You could be: "overcompensating" to AVOID pain on the same side as the tear. (A major symptom of Peroneus Brevis tear is pain on walking!

Apply ICE to both sides of your ankle prior to activity and wear good ankle supporting shoes (Until this is dealt with via surgery)
Hope this helps!

I have split tears to both the peroneal tendons. Tried boot for 6 weeks now cast and non weight bearing 4 weeks - still hurts. What's next?

I have split tears to both the peroneal tendons. Tried boot for 6 weeks now cast and non weight bearing 4 weeks - still hurts. What's next?

Peroneal tears: Unfortunately, not all tendons respond to "conservative" management--boots, no weight bearing, etc. And even more important, not all tendons follow our preferred treatment time and involvement. Only a careful evaluation by an orthopedic foot surgeon can determine what is the next "best" step, including surgery. ...Read more

What does artifact on the proton axial sequence suggesting a longitudinal split mean on a MRI? What does fluid in the subdeltoid and subacromial bursa

What does artifact on the proton axial sequence suggesting a longitudinal split mean on a MRI? What does fluid in the subdeltoid and subacromial bursa

Possible tear: From your question it sounds like the images show something along the length of a tendon that could be from artifact or a tear. Fluid in the subdeltoid and subacromial bursa are secondary findings of a rotator cuff tendon tear. Rotator cuff tendon tear can happen in along the grain of the tendon (a longitudinal split) or across the grain of the tendon which shows up as a discontinuous tendon. ...Read more

Will I need foot surgery for focal longitudinal split tear of the peroneus longus tendon, tenosynovitis of the flexor tendons, or a non visualized atf?

MAYBE: For the flexor tenosynovitis, no; PT, rest w/ a boot, NSAID's may help. "Non-visualized ATF? " I would have to see you clinically. Do you have an unstable ankle? "Split PL tendon"-I would start w/ a boot or brace, maybe PT. If it does not get better and it hurts, may need repair. Good luck!

Are longitudinal growth continues to 21 years?

No, that is rare: If no growth over the past year, then growth has finished. Most people reach their maximum height in their late teens. Without nutritional problems or chronic childhood illnesses, height is largely based on genetics and parental heights. Aside from eating right, exercising, sleeping well, and being happy, there's not much a person nor his doctor can do to increase height. ...Read more

Biphasic response: Typically, recovery occurs in two stages, with some initial improvement in the days or weeks after the surgery (as stunned nerves wake back up), followed by months of no real improvement and then finally a second stage of improvement (as regenerating nerve fibers finally grow to reach their targets). The important thing is to keep as active and limber as possible while waiting. ...Read more
