Common Peroneal Nerve Entrapment
Which are the symptoms?
From a clinical point of view, the patient has severe limitation in walking due to the so-called “dangling foot”, as well as pain in the leg and the foot itself.
How is it diagnosed?
Clinical and electromyographic examination is carried out during diagnosis.
How is it treated?
Surgical intervention removes the pain, while physical therapy is necessary to improve the situation with nerve damage (“dangling foot” position).
Surgery is performed using spinal anesthesia when the patient is conscious, with an average hospital stay of two days.
