Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome

Have you ever had numbness in your foot that spread to your toes while also being in pain, burning, and tingling? If so, you are probably suffering from a condition known as Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome. The tibial nerve experiences compression in this disease when it passes through the tarsal tunnel. The entire foot may be impacted if the entrapment is severe.

Obesity, pregnancy, diabetes, hyperthyroidism, arthritis, and diabetes are among the diseases that predispose some persons to tarsal tunnel. Ankle sprain swelling can also push on the tarsal tunnel by encircling the nerve there.

Rest, physical therapy manipulation and strengthening, anti-inflammatories, steroid and anesthetic injections, compression hose, immobilization, and orthotics are a few of the therapeutic techniques. In order to decompress the area if non-invasive therapy methods are unsuccessful, tarsal tunnel release surgery may be suggested.

Our aim is to get you pain-free and back on your feet as soon as possible. Make an appointment with American Foot and Leg Specialists, your podiatrist in Atlanta, right away.
