Meralgia Paraesthetica (MP) is a nerve entrapment of the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve, also known as the lateral cutaneous nerve of the thigh (LCNT). The scarcity of research and lack of consensus on the recognition and management has made MP a challenge to diagnose and treat. You may experience symptoms with prolonged standing and walking, and alleviation with sitting, however each individual will have their own unique unique clinical presentation.
Initial treatment often includes the use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication, protecting the area, avoiding compression activities, and physiotherapy specific to the mechanical deficits of each individual.

If you suffer from pain in the distribution of the LCNT, MP should be considered as a potential cause if the more common diagnoses such as a nerve root problem of the lower back or hip bursitis have been ruled out. MP has been classified as mechanical or metabolic, or as a post-surgical complication of the hip or spine.
It has been hypothesised that excessive anterior pelvic tilt (pictured), soft tissue tightness at the front of the hip, and contraction of the inguinal ligament may all contribute to the development of MP.
