Tendonitis of the foot, or peroneal tendonitis, happens when the larger tendons in the ankle and foot become inflamed due to added stress. Runners, marathoners and people in sports that require a lot of running can suffer from tendonitis. Chronic tendonitis is a soreness in the foot when a person starts to move, but the pain dulls as the body warms up. Treatment for tendonitis normally requires resting the foot.

More Information about Tendonitis

According to the American Orthopaedic Foot & Ankle Society

The peroneal tendons run on the outside of the ankle just behind the bone called the fibula. Tendons connect muscle to bone and allow them to exert their force across the joints that separate bones. Ligaments, on the other hand, connect bone to bone. Tendinitis implies that there is inflammation in the tendon. Tendinosis means there is enlargement and thickening with swelling of the tendon.

Tendonitis Diagnosis
The diagnosis of peroneal tendinosis can be made in large part by history (i.e. the story a patient tells). As noted above, patients will have an overuse activity, rapid increase in recent activity, or other training errors and will have pain in the back and outside of the ankle. There is pain on exam to palpation right on the peroneal tendons. It is important to distinguish this from pain over the fibula, which might indicate a different problem (i.e. stress reaction of the bone). Pain on the fibula occurs directly over the bone which is easily palpated. Pain in the peroneals occurs slightly further behind.
