Baxter’s Neuropathy

Whitney Lowe’s article on Baxter’s Neuropathy (compression of the inferior calcaneal nerve) was pretty enlightening! He stressed that plantar foot pain doesn’t HAVE to be plantar fasciitis and that the ICN is a motor AND sensory nerve. Mostly, I like that he talked about the fact that treatment (he gave some techniques that SHOULD work), like so many “things” with the human body, very well could take a lot of trial and error but mostly should consist of the massage therapist getting feedback from the patient!
