Although peripheral nerve lesions are quite rare in sport injuries, they can be a career ending cause and have a serious impact on the general quality of life of the former sportsman. Therefore, it is imperative that nerve lesions be diagnosed promptly, allowing early intervention prior to irreversible loss of nerve function. That’s why sports medicine physicians must have a deep knowledge of peripheral nerve anatomy and physiology in order to diagnose the level of injury accurately and provide appropriate treatment and prognostic information to the patient.
Key words:

knee injuries, nerve lesions, compression, traction, laceration
