It is not likely that any specific neurolgical tests would be helpful. If scar tissue is 'trapping' a nerve then the focus should be on getting rid of the scar tissue. That can be done via ultrasound, massage, injections of a scar dissolving enzyme -- hyaluronidase.

thanks you DR ed because i just got back from a new foot doctor he was positive i have a intraped nerve and said a shot in the scare tissue was not long term and he could cut the nerve outso i wouldent have to worry about scare tissue no more
