Entrapment neuropathies of the tibial (posterior tibial) nerve

Academic Article


  • Entrapment neuropathies of the tibial nerve are relatively rare. They are often misdiagnosed largely because of the clinician's low index of suspicion. The clinical features, diagnostic studies, and treatment of these disorders are reviewed in detail in this article. Almost all of these disorders can now be confirmed through nerve conduction and other image studies.
