Friday’s Tip of the Week – Releasing Femoral Nerve Entrapment

As some of you know I have meralgia paresthetica, which is the entrapment of the femoral nerve. Basically, my right thigh is numb and I haven’t had sensation in it in just about a year. It’s more of a nuisance than anything and I found out that it’s not really uncommon for runners. Sometimes I get tingling and weird sensations, but for the most part I don’t feel a thing on the surface. Didn’t even realize I was leaning up against a hot stove until I started to smell my pants heat up. I need to get it taken care of, but I just don’t have the means to incur medical bills at the moment. Besides, the first thing the doctors will probably tell me to do is physical therapy. So, I looked up some exercises and found these video clips on how to help release the entrapment of the femoral nerve. Below are two clips, one that explains the anatomy of a femoral nerve entrapment and one that has exercises to help relieve it.
