There was full strength of 0.3 for the tibialis posterior and peroneal muscle groups bilaterally.
Ultrasonography showed cystic mass localized proximal of the peroneal muscle structures.
For example, research has indicated that ankle taping can increase (Lohrer et al., 1999), have no effect (Gribble et al., 2006; Hopper et al., 1999), or decrease (Alt et al., 1999) peroneal muscle activity during actions involving ankle inversion.
(63) If a recovery occurs, the superficial peroneal nerve is expected to recover first, with peroneal muscle contractures evident at about 5 months, followed by the deep peroneal nerve with tibialis anterior contractures evident at 12 months.
from dorsal decubitus position, ankle abduction exercises are made, without and with opposing resistance (for the lateral short peroneal muscle), simultaneously (2 x 10);
Hereby it was found that the long peroneal muscle had been re-innervated by the superficial branch of the fibular nerve, whilst there was not only axonal but also severe myogenous damage (electrically silent muscles) to all the muscles innervated by the profound branch of the fibular nerve.
Further, although ankle taping (Karlsson and Andreasson 1992, Refshauge et al 2000) and training to reduce peroneal muscle response times have been advocated for reducing or preventing functional instability of the ankle (Sheth et al 1997), neurophysiological responses to sudden ankle inversion movements are not necessarily improved by ankle taping (Allison et al 1999).
In the present study, a special patient with facioscapulohumeral and peroneal muscle weakness and myoclonic epilepsy, who had a co-segregated 20-kb 4qA-allele fragment and a typical peripheral neuropathy similar to Charcot-Marie-Tooth (CMT) syndrome, was described.
Many researchers have proposed that peroneal muscle reflex response time is a more important factor than strength in providing dynamic control of ankle stability.
The impairments in the sprained group may reflect deficits in either movement detection, peroneal muscle response, or both.
