Re: S1 is the nerve for ankle & side of foot

Hi Shawley,
Can you tell me where you found this article?
I also have pain on the side of my foot/ankle... drives me nuts. All the images of leg nerves would indicate the peroneal nerve... a branch of the sciatic nerve?

Spine university I think ? I googles back pain and nerves , did alot of reading about the nerves. I don't understand how my S1 has anything to do with my surgery . Another question I'll ask my doctor . I'm sure there is a reason cause were not alone.

So that's why the sides of both feet go anywhere from numb to painful. Thanks
