Peroneal nerve dysfunction?
I have a client who was recently diagnosed with peroneal nerve dysfunction. It is not severe enough that she has foot drop, but she does have numbness to the outside of her knee and difficulty getting up from the floor. Her doctor did not recommend physical therapy or give her any exercise suggestions for treatment. She did suggest not to hyper extend or flex the knee as well as not bending the knee beyond 90degrees.
Has anyone had a client who has had peroneal nerve dysfunction? What exercises did you do or not do to help the client with this condition?
Too, before anyone can determine which exercises are appropriate for the client, it is important to determine what exercises tests are you going to use as a baseline in order to choose appropriate exercises.
One of my clients who is 88-years old has peroneal nerve dysfunction as a consequence of Parkinsons. I wish I could give you an answer but it is a little difficult as a consequence of not having objective data.
