Types of Pain and Problems

Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome

Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome is pain, tingling, numbness, and/or weakness that occur to the inside of the ankle to the toes and /or to the bottom of the foot. This is caused by compression of the posterior tibial nerve, a nerve that runs from the inside of ankle to the toes. To diagnose, the provider will conduct certain examinations to try and re-create the sensation by tapping on the nerve. Other tests, such as EMG (electromyography)/NCS (Nerve Conduction Study) testing can be performed. Rest and ice can be good initial treatments and may provide some relief. Additional treatments include anti-inflammatory medications, splints, physical therapy, and injections. If these treatments do not work, surgical intervention may be necessary.
