Peroneal Nerve Injury

I was a little sore after a standard 6 mile run 4 weeks ago. I had my friend massage the muscle over my peroneal nerve. He dug really deep and about an hour later my right foot was numb and I couldnt lift my right foot. I did some serious research and have come to the conclusion that I pinched/bruised my peroneal nerve. I was suffering from drop foot and still am to a degree. It has been exactly 4 weeks since the injury and I still cant stand on the heel of my right foot. There is no more numbness and the flexibility is back to about 80%. My main concern in that I get back to 100%. I've read up on severe peroneal injuries but can't find much on mild ones like mine. Anyone else out there with this? I've read 3-6 weeks for full recovery but if in 2 more weeks I still can't run I'm going to freak out!

Thanks to anyone who provides any insight.

Re: Peroneal Nerve Injury

See a really good chiropractor. Your friend probably adjusted something in your foot that has caused a pinched nerve. It is hard to find good chiropractors though. I went 900 miles to find one that cured my PN completely. I had pinched the nerves in both of my big toes from wearing ill-fitting shoes. Good luck!

Re: Peroneal Nerve Injury


Think I have exactly the same thing. I had a massage on sunday. I am living in Malaysia right now and it was a chinese massage so quite deep. Went to bed and noticed tingling in my right toe....think I have foot drop as a result of damage to the peroneal nerve. Or it could be from crossing my legs (apparently). I have been doing a lot of work on my lap top so this could be the cause in which case if I stop doing that it will go away. It is good to know that you had improvement over the 4 weeks or so.

I want to ask you what happened? did you find any good excersises to do? I guess like your's mine is mild but I am Yogi and Dancer and like you feel very upset if my body is out of whack!

Please share any advice that you discovered!

Thank you
