Hi, anybody out there in the Podiatry world have any idea to treat peroneal subluxations without surgical intervention?
This 16 year old patient has suffered from this chronic condition for over 8 years and both the GP and Orthopod are happy for him to wait to see if he 'Grows out' of it! The condition is causing him a great deal of pain when it occurs but he is able to relocate the tendon back behind the malleoli with ease. It can occur both weight and non-weight bearing.
Both him and his mother are concerned now as he will be soon starting to learn to drive, and what happens if they sublux during a lesson as the pain for a split second is very severe!
I thought initially of a Horse shoe brace to reinforce and support but I thought i'd throw the problem into the Arena to see if you guys have any other suggestions or if a brace for this condition exists?
