Foot nerve diagram
The sciatic nerve is the dominant nerve that innervates the lower back and the lower extremities. It travels from the lower spine, through the pelvis, and down each leg. It is the longest and The
deep peroneal nerve makes up one section of the common peroneal nerve. The common peroneal nerve runs alongside the sciatic nerve, from the femur to the buttocks. It then courses further down The lateral plantar nerve (external plantar nerve) is a branch of the tibial nerve, in turn a branch of the sciatic nerve and supplies the skin of the fifth toe and lateral half of the fourth, as well as most of the deep muscles, its distribution being similar to that of the ulnar nerve in the hand. It passes obliquely forward with the lateral plantar artery to the lateral side of the foot Tarsal tunnel syndrome is caused by anything that produces compression on the posterior
tibial nerve. Source: IOMStudy.com from the Institute of Medicine. The Femoral Nerve arises from nerve fibers from the the L2-L3-L4 portion of the lumbar spine. The Femoral Nerve then passes down the inside edge of the thigh, past the inside of the knee and towards the ankle and foot. The Sciatic Nerve is the largest nerve in the body and it is comprised of nerves from the L4-L5-S1-S2-S3 level of the spine. Charcot foot is a condition causing weakening of the bones in the foot that can occur in people who have significant nerve damage (neuropathy). Foot Tendonitis Information. Foot tendonitis is a common condition amongest hard working people and athletes. Tendonitis of the foot affects 1 particular tendon in the foot, the posterior tibial tendon. The medial plantar nerve (internal plantar nerve) is the larger of the two terminal divisions of the tibial nerve
(medial and lateral plantar nerve), which accompanies the medial plantar artery. From its origin under the laciniate ligament it passes under cover of the abductor hallucis muscle, and, appearing between this muscle and the flexor digitorum brevis, gives off a proper digital Key elements in a reflexology foot chart! about reflexology zones & the meridians! The general purpose of 'reflex zone therapy' (a.k.a. reflexology) is to 'balance' the nervous system. The ears contain structures for both the sense of hearing and the sense of balance. The eighth cranial nerve (vestibulocochlear nerve made up of the auditory and vestibular nerves) carries nerve impulses for both hearing and balance from the ear to the brain.
