Ankle Sprain Peroneal Nerve Injury
A complete nerve transection will leave an area totally numb. The distribution of the numbers depends upon where the nerve was cut. A partial nerve injury may leave the area tingly or incompletely numb. Finally even if the nerve is not cut the swelling and bruising to the tea can affect the nerve as well. Usually we consider sharp penetrating injuries as likely having nerve lacerations when sensation is lost. A hand surgeon can examine the hand and pinpoint the site or extent of nerve injury and recommend ...Read more
Common peroneal nerve injury and partial posterior tibial nerve injury knee joint. What treatment should I go for? Can simulation help?
Nerve injury recover: Nerves consist of insulation called myelin and fibers which carry signals. If only the myelin has been damaged, usually function will return. If the nerve has been partially severed, some recovery is possible. If the nerve has been completely severed then recovery is not likely. A test called electromyography/nerve conduction study can tell the type of injury and the best treatment. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Had a grade 3 ankle sprain, 10 weeks of pt still pain, weak, in stable and swelling. Doctor said i may have nerve damage? How is this treated?
Two thoughts...: If the ankle instability remains a chronic problem it can be treated with taping, bracing or surgery. Although you do not give any specifics on the location of the nerve injury there are a minority of ankle sprains that result in traction (neuropraxic) injuries to the superficial peroneal nerve. This is a sensory nerve on the top of the foot. See an orthopaedic surgeon: www.Aaos.Org. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
What are the symptoms of peroneal nerve compressed? Can it occur from ankle sprain? Fibula possibly moved and pinched nerve.
Nerve impingement: Unlikely, that the fibular bone moved to pinch a nerve. The peroneal nerve (superficial peroneal nerve) is located in the skin and can be impinged through swelling resulting from an ankle sprain. The bone, ligaments, muscle, tendons are deeper than the skin, but the swelling associated with injury can cause shooting pain, burning, tingling, and numbness. Hope this helps. ...Read more

See below : For any injury, the best course is the riice mnemonic ( rest, ice, ibuprofen, compression and elevation). The more you play on the ankle before it is completely healed, the more likely you are to worsen the injury and increase the likelihood of a permanent disability. As for surgery, that depends on the injury. For any ligamentous injury, recuperation time can be a long time - 1 to 2 months. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Neuropraxia is defined as a temporary loss of function of the nerve. Some nerves are purely sensory while others carry both sensory and motor fibers. Traumatic contusion injuries to nerves or nerve compressions can cause Neuropraxia. Sensory nerves like sural nerve in the leg or mixed sensory and motor nerves like the median and ulnar nerves in the forearm & hand ...Read more
The brain and spinal cord communicates with what is occurring in the internal organs and limbs by nerve fibers where are like electrical wires with insulation (myelin) and the "copper" (axon). Within brain and spinal cord these nerves connect to other nerves via synapses on both axons and dendrites. A nerve can carry information regarding sensations, and ...Read more
