Wondering if anyone has any experience treating Peroneal nerve impingement? Patient diagnosed with nerve tests as having peroneal nerve impingment. Experiencing complete numbness starting at ST-36, GB-34 area. Numbeness extends down GB and ST channels, crosses over to solely ST channel at approximately GB-37 and extends to dorsum of foot and second and third toes.
Patient is very active with excercise and dance. Gluts and hamstring are fairly tight. Patient hyperextedned knee two years ago. Knee and leg feels somewhat cold compared to the other side
I haven't formulated a zang fu diagnosis because this seems mostly channel related (perhaps this is in error?). Basically, the thought is that this is qi stagnation in the gluts/hip and in the knee area (due to prior injury).
Tx thus far has focused on hip and hamstring ah shi pts (BL, GB channels), Ah shis on thight and lower leg GB points, and GB-34, ST-36 areas. Just two treatments thus far, but no signs of improvement.
Any insight would be appreciated.
