Summary

In this procedure, the provider uses an open approach to incise scar tissue or other sources of pressure to relieve tension on the sciatic nerve, a major peripheral nerve, in the leg or the cervical brachial plexus nerves in the arm. The sciatic nerve is one of the seven major peripheral nerves that innervate the skin and muscles of the posterior thigh, leg, and foot.  The brachial plexus nerves are a network of nerves that innervate the shoulder, arm and hand.
