tibial nerve deep
Back
Forward
The tibial nerve may be injured during penetrating wounds to the popliteal fossa, fracture of the distal femur, knee dislocation, or if it is compressed by a Baker’s cyst (fluid filled pouch derived from the bursae at behind the knee, or an outpocketing of the synovial membrane through the posterior capsule of the knee joint). The test for this nerve involves testing for plantar flexion of the foot, inversion of the foot, and flexion of the toes against resistance – the nerve may also be assessed by asking the patient to walk on his/her toes.
