Nerve entrapment: It depends on what is damaged. If the nerve itself is damaged, the nerve can grow about an inch a month or so to reconnect to the where the nerve endings should be. If the nerve is intact, but the structures around the nerve have been damaged, then the recovery time might be sooner. An electrodiagnostic study could help differentiate the two. Hold off on the hike especially if you have weakness. ...Read more

Is surgery needed for foot drop from anterior tarsal tunnel syndrome (deep peroneal nerve entrapment) from ant tib tenosynovitis from ultrasound burn?

The nerve runs deep as the name implies and hence would not be affected from ultrasound. Entrapment of this nerve would not cause a dropfoot, it usually causes numbness to the first webspace or great toe. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Small lateral malleolus fx from 4-2012; ankle pain up to mid calf (burn/ache/etc). Ortho said ?peroneal nerve entrap? & could do surgery. Now or wait?
Wait: Did you have Emg/ ncv's of your lower extremities?If you did and it confirms peroneal nerve entrapment then release may be helpful. This is a fairly unusual nerve entrapment syndrome,however, and unless the pain is worsening I would wait and see if it doesn't improve. Also, regional pain syndrome( RSD) can cause similar symptoms and should be ' ruled out'.best of luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
