Answer

Osteopathic manipulative treatment should be used throughout the recovery process to monitor and correct biomechanical dysfunctions that can lead to peroneal disorders, as previously mentioned in the Acute Phase section. Osteopathic manipulative treatment should be used in concert with physical therapy to minimize the number of times it is used by stabilizing the alignment through improvement in pain, core stability, and gait biomechanics.
