Bilateral Peroneal Subluxation

The videos of a fencing athlete showing both feet plantarflexed and going into eversion to initiate subluxation of the peroneal tendons.

The left peroneal subluxation (suffered after a game of futsal) causes pain with sprinting and quick lunges hence limiting his performance in his sport. His rehabilitation may take up to 8 weeks before return to sport.

The right preoneal tendon partially subluxes but doesn't seem to give the athlete any problems as he is still able to plantarflex comfortably without pain.

Also see a previous post on peroneal subluxation here.
