Interdigital Nerve Entrapment
Entrapment of the interdigital nerve is dependent on the fact that extension of the medial and lateral plantar nerves must pass in close relationship to the deep transverse tarsal ligament. Hyperextension of the toes at the metatarso-phalangeal joint increases angulation of the nerves and probably increases the pressure of the nerves against the bone. Each nerve supplies the tips and opposing surfaces of the adjacent toes (Figs. 38 and 39).
