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.
Epidermal Nerve Fiber Density testing is becoming the gold-standard in testing for the presence of SFPN. Unlike other tests, Epidermal Nerve Fiber Density testing is able to test the nerves in question using high-performance technology to “see through” to the issue and determine its degree of severity.
