1

GTO for peroneals?

Yes

2

Tissue approximation for peroneals?

No, they lie between extensor digitorum longus and soleus, making them difficult to access for this technique.

3

Muscle mobilization for peroneals?

No, they lie between extensor digitorum longus and soleus, making them difficult to access for this technique.

4

Stripping for peroneals?

Yes

5

Cross fibre massage for peroneals?

Yes

6

Cross fibre friction for peroneals?

Yes

7

Trigger point for peroneals?

Yes

8

Compression for peroneals?

Yes

9

Compression with manipulation for peroneals?

No, they lie between extensor digitorum longus and soleus, making them difficult to access for this technique.

10

Compression with broadening for peroneals?

Yes

11

Action(s) for peroneals?

Everts the foot and assists to plantar flex the ankle (point the toes) with talocrural joint.

12

Origin of peroneals?

Longus: Head of fibula and proximal 2/3 of lateral fibula.
Brevis: distal 2/3 of lateral fibula

13

Insertion for peroneals?

Longus: base of 1st metatarsal and medial cuneiform.

Brevis: tuberosity of 5th metatarsal.

14

Which techniques are not appropriate for peroneal muscles?

Tissue approximation, muscle mobilization, compression with manipulation.
