Nerve entrapments


Book Section

© Springer International Publishing Switzerland 2016. All rights reserved. Nerve entrapments are an under-appreciated and under-diagnosed cause of many recalcitrant aches and pains in athletes. These entrapments are difficult to diagnose due to the dynamic nature of symptoms. The goal of this chapter is to discuss the etiology, treatment strategies, rehabilitation, and prevention of six common foot and ankle nerve entrapments experienced by athletes-Morton's neuroma, tarsal tunnel syndrome, anterior tarsal tunnel syndrome, and entrapment of the superficial peroneal nerve, Baxter's nerve, and jogger's nerve.
