You helped me once before with advice regarding Neuro Eze cream for my feet. If you don't mind, I had a question about peroneal tendons/muscles. I broke both my heels 7 years ago and had plates/pins installed. Over the years my feet have gradually become more and more supinated, to an extreme point where management with orthotics is impossible on my left foot. I'm 5'6" and weigh 145 lbs. It's occurred to me that I'm sore right where the peroneal tendons run, and I can't put my big toe on the ground. I didn't start out this supinated. Is it possible that I have a peroneal injury from the plate or accident that is making me more supinated?
I would not consider a surgery unless the peroneal tendon function is evaluated by a physiatrist/neurologist and a physical therapist. The MDs will perform a Nerve Conduction Test with EMG (muscle test) and the PT will be more practical about muscle strength and function. A bone scan or MRI should be done if there is questions about loosening of the plate on the lateral side of your foot. Any surgery like this should be pre investigated with a fine tooth comb to understand why this is happening, not just how to fix it. The fix may be simple, and have nothing to do with surgery. I hope this is in your case. And, I hope this helps you. Rich
PS Please review all my posts on excessive supination, one of my most favorite topics, to get a strong handle on some of the conservative options, but also so you can ask those treating you the best questions.
