BrainWaves: A Neurology Podcast

Oct 18, 2018

What do gardeners and snow skiers have in common? Well, besides the fact that both tend to enjoy the outdoors, it turns out they are also at an increased risk of peripheral nerve injury. This week on the podcast, we review the anatomy and pathophysiology of several of the most common sites of nerve damage in the lower extremity.
