Neuropathy in joggers.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

We have reported upon three different mononeuropathies that we believe were directly attributable to jogging. At this time it is presumed that this complication is not common, but as jogging increases as a routine form of exercise for the general populace it is possible that more such neuropathies will be seen. Mechanical injuries in runners are well described, and it is possible that as yet unidentified mechanical factors may injure neural tissue as well.
