What causes Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome?
There is no one specific cause for tarsal tunnel syndrome, but inflammation is the most recognized reason for TTS. Since the tibial nerve is encased in the tarsal tunnel, anything that takes up extra room, like inflammation, causes swelling in the tissues and puts pressure on the nerve. When the nerve becomes "pinched", it sends a pain signal, which may be felt anywhere from the toes through the lower leg, depending on where the nerve is under pressure. Inflammation can be caused by varicose veins, a noncancerous tumor on the nerve, trauma, edema, arthritis, ankle sprain, flat feet, bone spur, ganglion cyst, or any number of conditions.
Symptoms of Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome may include :
(symptoms vary depending on where the nerve is compressed)
Treatment for Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome
