Neuropathies of the foot.

Academic Article

Abstract

  • Compared with the common neuropathies affecting the hands (carpal tunnel syndrome and ulnar neuropathy), neuropathies of the feet have received less attention in the past. This is partly because of the rarity of these disorders as well as the lack of reliable electrophysiological tests for them. Over the years, nerve conduction tests for various nerves of the feet have been reported, and at this time techniques for all the nerves of the feet are available to the electromyographer. This review will provide up-to-date information on the current status of the research and issues relating to the neuropathies of the foot, with an emphasis on the most useful tests and the caveats for clinical neurophysiologists.
