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.
The most common cause of heel pain in children is Calcaneal Apophysitis, also known as Sever’s Disease. Contributors to the condition primarily include increased athletic activity. And there’s no way to “cure” it. So, what can you do to treat Calcaneal Apophysitis? Read on to learn!
Bunions affect billions (yes, with a B) of people worldwide, causing foot pain and deformities that affect everything from the look of the feet to the way a person walks. Bunions can cause pain and other foot issues, so addressing bunions once they begin to form is a meaningful step in the prevention of further issues.
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.
Tendonitis is a common ailment that many people suffer with at one point or another, and is the body’s natural response to overused tendons and ligaments. With moderate rest, the symptoms tend to relieve themselves and normal functioning can continue. But chronic pain, lasting 6 weeks or more, is an indication that your tendonitis requires the care and attention of an expert physician, or in this case, a podiatrist.
