Nerve Abnormalities

Lower extremity nerves, the body's sensation superstars, face foes like neuropathy, neuroma, and tarsal tunnel. Beware of diabetes complications and sciatica and keep an eye on those tingling toes.

What are Nerve Abnormalities?

The lower extremities' nerves facilitate muscle function and provide sensation to skin and tissue. Common nerve abnormalities include neuropathy, neuroma, and tarsal tunnel (ankle's carpal tunnel equivalent). Tarsal tunnel's cause is unclear but may involve injury, compression, or varicose veins. Morton's neuroma, a thickened tissue around foot nerves, could result from compression, pinching, or abnormal biomechanics. Diabetes complications can also cause nerve abnormalities, presenting as tingling, numbness, burning sensation, pain, or weakness. Similarly, sciatica, usually caused by a pinched or compressed spine nerve, may produce tingling and numbness.

  • Common abnormalities: neuropathy, neuroma, tarsal tunnel
  • Tarsal tunnel causes: injury, compression, varicose veins
  • Morton's neuroma: compression, pinching, abnormal foot biomechanics
  • Diabetes complications can lead to nerve abnormalities
  • Sciatica: typically results from pinched/compressed spine nerve
