The authors have produced a pair of articles that can be used to rapidly identify back, hip, and lower limb muscles and their innervation(s). This article presents the motor and sensory innervation of the lower limb by color-coding structures to match their peripheral nerves. It provides a companion summary table that allows prediction of unique patterns of denervation from 12 lesions sites.
