In brief: Trauma/overuse

Peroneal tendonitis can be related to an injury or overuse and is often associated with a higher arch foot posture which puts more strain on the tendons.
Initial treatment with rest, anti-inflammatories and bracing can be effective.

In brief: Sports

Running, jumping, and cutting exercises use the peroneal tendons, and overuse, particularly with sporadic participation, can lead to peroneal tendonitis.
An ankle sprain with peroneal tendon pain afterwards can be a sign of a peroneal tendon tear. Injury to the ligaments behind the lateral ankle can lead to peroneal subluxation, a condition related to peroneal tendonitis.
