It’s usually injured by over use. So, rest, ice, elevation, compression sock and anti-inflammatory should help this muscle. EDB is a muscle on the upper surface of the foot that helps extend metatarsals 2 through 4. RX is always ice 30 minutes 2 – 3 x a day on the painful area. Take anti-inflammatory meds, stretch, and tape the shin and arch before any physical activity.
