Can an injury cause nerve damage to my feet or legs?

Injuries can be a cause of nerve damage to the foot or leg.  Ankle sprains, foot injuries, knee injuries can cause damage to the nerves and at times a nerve compression.  You may feel funny sensations, tingling, pins and needles, or numbness days, weeks or months after the injury.  It is important to make sure there is no compression on the nerves or the problem may become worse or permanent.

Our office deals with nerve problems and offers different treatment options depending on the cause.
