The Saphenous nerve is the largest sensory branch of the femoral nerve. Saphenous nerve entrapment is a condition of the nervous system in the thigh. The nerve when entrapped can commonly cause both medial (inside) knee pain or can mimic medial shin splints.

A saphenous nerve entrapment is caused by pressure being placed on the saphenous nerve in the thigh. The pressure is often caused by structures within the thigh, such as fascia, muscles, or other structures. The saphenous nerve begins near the skin and travels deep into leg.

Risk of saphenous nerve entrapment is increased with activities that involve repetitive and/or strenuous use of the thigh muscles (such as running, jumping, or prolonged walking), poor strength and flexibility, and / or overly strong quadriceps and thigh (hamstring) muscles.

The video below will demonstrate how to perform a Saphenous nerve floss, a specific and effective, way to treat sharp, aching, and burning sensations that you may have from mid inner thigh to your shin.

Watch the video below to see Dr. Shepard perform a recommended way of flossing the Saphenous nerve. If you have any further questions, feel free to email him at
