Re: Torn Peroneal Retinaculum

Until you can have this repaired, I would recommend a very good ankle brace. In my practice I use the ASO brace very frequently. I greatly prefer these for the control over any other the stirrup type ankle braces (example Air splint) But of course there are always personal preferences.

If the peroneal tendons sublux out of the groove, you will have a problem. It will require a surgery.

Without seeing your toe, I can only guess that it was broken.
