Medial Plantar Nerve

The medial plantar nerve, the larger of the two terminal branches of the tibial nerve (which stem from the sciatic nerve), accompanies the medial plantar artery. From its origin under the flexor retinaculum it passes deep into the muscles of the toes, and becomes the proper plantar digital nerve to the great toe. It finally divides opposite the bases of the toes into the three common digital nerves.
