In brief: Weakness
Peroneal muscular atrophy is also know as charcot marie tooth disease (cmt), a genetic polyneuropathy that results in foot and leg weakness, potential for falls, secondary injury due to falls (e.
g. Fractures), to name a few. Without getting into too much depth, much of the debility from this condition is due to the effects of foot/ankle/leg weakness.

In brief: Peroneal muscles
Charcot-marie-tooth disease (hereditary motor and sensory neuropathy) is a group of hereditary disorders that affects the nerves in your arms and legs.
It causes muscle weakness and decreased muscle bulk with limited decreased sensation. Foot deformities such as hammertoes and high arches are common in charcot-marie-tooth disease. Muscle weakness and loss of balance can make walking difficult.
