Fibular Neuropathy


Fibular neuropathy is caused by injury to the common peroneal (fibular) nerve causing foot drop and numbness in the area supplied by the nerve. The most common cause of injury is from compression at the fibular head. The symptoms can overlap with other conditions such as a pinched nerve in the back, thus getting an accurate diagnosis with nerve conduction studies is important.
