In brief: Affected nerves are:
Any peripheral sensory-motor branch of nerves that affect the anterior musculature of the leg and foot.
Becuase gb causes upper motor nerve disruption of muscular function, the most affected nerves are those in the lower leg and foot that are part of the "swing" phase of gait, namely the extensor muscle of the foot and anterior tibialis muscle. The nerve roots affected are l3-l4-l5-s1.
