APPLICATION OVERVIEW

The three peroneal muscles are located at the surface of the outside of the lower leg. They serve to turn the foot out and push it down (plantarflex). The tendons run behind the ankle bone and connect the muscles to the boney structures of the foot and ankle. Common causes of pain include inversion ankle sprains, breaking into a sprint while off balance, or simply overusing these muscles resulting in inflammation. KT Tape can reduce pain and speed the healing process by increasing circulation, providing stability, and relieving the pressure on the inflamed and painful tendon.
