Please Help!!! Abductor Digiti Minimi Tear, Peroneal Tendon
I am desperate for some information or advice on this injury. I can not seem to find ANYTHING in my research. I am training for a marathon and 3 weeks ago felt a sharp pain on the lateral side of my foot. I saw a Podiatrist and he said I had tendonitis of the Peroneal Brevis tendon and administered a Cortisone injection. He also prescribed a walking boot. I discontinued my training but found that the pain continued even with light walking. I have a toddler so it is near impossible to completely stay off my foot. I had an MRI which showed a tear of the Abductor Digiti Minimi muscle. I am scheduled to see the Podiatrist in another 3 weeks.
As far as thepain goes, I feel it most when I am putting pressure on the foot, on the lateral side under the ankle. The pain gets so bad that I can bearly put pressure on the foot at all. When I stop putting pressure, the pain stops entirely. Sometimes the pain feels like it is radiating up my cal and down to my toe. When I palpate the area where the pain occurs, I can't reproduce the feeling I have when walking/running. Is this typical of a muscle tear or a tendon injury?
How does this injury occur, what is the quickest way to rehab it, how can I prevent it in the future, and how long until I can bear weight on my foot again? I am eager to get back into my regular running routine but would settle for a light walk around the neighborhood. I tried to walk a little yesterday and a half mile into it I was hobbling back home
If there is anyone who has had experience with this injury, I would love your input too. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
