Nerves of Foot

Main innervation of foot is done by the: Tibial Nerve Deep Fibular Nerve Superficial fibular Nerve Sural Nerve Saphenous Nerves Tibial Nerve The tibial nerve travels inside the foot via the tarsal tunnel, posterior towards the medial malleolus. The nerve lies lateral towards the posterior tibial artery
