Compression of the peroneal nerve can cause sensory and motor deficits which can compromise the function of the foot. Neither common superficial nor deep peroneal nerve injuries, complicating figure skating, have been reported previously. We present three cases of peroneal nerve compression in figure skaters who underwent neurolysis for these peripheral nerve problems with excellent outcome. Peroneal nerve injury in figure skaters may be an underappreciated sports medicine problem.
