Sports medicine physicians should be able to recognize and manage peripheral nerve injuries in athletes. Most often, the injury is a result of repetitive microtrauma, linking peripheral nerve injury to other musculoskeletal injuries in athletes. As with other musculoskeletal injuries, rest and a modification of the athlete's regimen often lead in clinical improvement. If the physician is uncertain about the diagnosis, if the athlete develops a rapid worsening of symptoms and signs, or if the athlete refractory to treatment, a physician who specializes in peripheral nerve injuries should be consulted.
