Peroneal Nerve Entrapment is a common compressive neuropathy of the lower extremities. The Peroneal Nerve is a branch of the sciatic nerve, and supplies movement and sensation to the lower leg, foot, and toes. This condition can affect people of any age. Diagnosing the exact problem and receiving treatment early is critical to avoid irreversible nerve damage and injury progression.
Many of us have experienced the pain and suffering that accompanies an ankle sprain. It often strikes without warning – whether completing a menial task or during high points of activity. Either way, it’s always a cause for concern, because even though sprains can be healed with proper rest and recovery (depending on the severity of the sprain), ankle sprains are actually much more vulnerable to further injury than you might think. And if your ankle sprain does not heal correctly, it can lead to instability, arthritis and injury recurrence.
