Hi. May i know if excercise like cycling injure femoral nerve ?

Hi. May i know if excercise like cycling injure femoral nerve ?

Probably not: Neurofibromatosis causes multiple benign tumors along peripheral nerves, which may be painful. While very aggressive cycling with multiple falls and repeated thigh trauma might cause femoral nerve injury, likely you're safe with biking. ...Read more

Nerve (Definition)

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

Where does the femoral nerve runs?

Where does the femoral nerve runs?

Anatomy: The femoral nerve arises from the second, third, and fourth lumbar nerves (L2-L4). It descends through the fibers of the psoas major muscle, emerging from the muscle at the lower part of its lateral border, and passes down between it and the iliacus muscle, behind the iliac fascia; it then runs beneath the inguinal ligament, into the thigh, and splits into an anterior and a posterior division. ...Read more

Total hip replacement a year ago. Dr stretched my femoral nerve and said nerve would return 100% by 6 mos. After 1 yr, I have abt 60%. How much longer?

Total hip replacement a year ago. Dr stretched my femoral nerve and said nerve would return 100% by 6 mos. After 1 yr, I have abt 60%. How much longer?

This could be it: This is a rare complication and usually the result of an anterior hip approach. Injury to the sensory nerve to the thigh is the more common issue with this approach. I agree that regrowth is about 1mm per day after the first few weeks, but a year is more than enough time for the nerve cell to find it's way if it going to happen. You can have a neurologist evaluate your current status with an emg. ...Read more
