Femoral Nerve Neurodynamic Tests

Femoral nerve neurodynamic tests are evaluations used to test the flexibility and movement of the femoral nerve. The tests involve gentle glides from the hip, through the thigh and leg, to assess the nerve's ability to move and function. These tests help clinicians determine whether hip or lower limb neurological or orthopedic problems are causing potential nerve compression. The tests can also provide insight into the presence of symptoms that occur due to mechanical stress on the nerve.
