Lower leg muscle (tibialis anterior?) hurts during racquetball. Treadmill prior to game not helping.
Can you tell me if a laceration to the tibialis anterior tendon in my foot. Would this foot affect the tibialis anterior?
Difficult to say: It is difficult to say without an exam but unless you have suffered a major trauma to you leg i think problems with ankle extension would be unlikely. You would need a severe, deep laceration thru all of the anterior compartment musculature to affect function significantly after healing. If you have such a wound you should definitely be seen by an orthopedic surgeon. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Is it alright to ski if I am overcoming tibialis anterior tendonitis and just sprained my ankle today?
Fine once recovered: I recommend obtaining medical clearance from at least your physical therapist and your treating physician. Ski boots tend to put considerable pressure directly over the area of your foot and ankle that is home to your tibialis anetrior tendon. Skiing is a great sport, but chronic tendinitis may diminish the fun due to pain. Swelling around your ankle will potentially make boot fitting difficult. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
