Medial plantar nerve

Other Terms: Internal plantar nerve, Nervus plantaris medialis, Nerf plantaire médial


The medial plantar nerve is the larger of the two branches off the tibial nerve. It travels with the medial plantar artery. It goes under the abductor hallucis to pass off a proper digital plantar nerve. It divides opposite the bases of the toes into three common digital nerves. It supplies the abductor hallucis, flexor hallucis brevis, flexor digitorum brevis, and the first lumbrical. It provides sensory supply to the skin of medial plantar surface of foot and the plantar surface of the medial 3.5 toes.
