Tarsal tunnel syndrome develops when an injury or an existing condition causes compression of the tibial nerve. These tibial nerves run through the tarsal tunnel, a collection of bones and ligaments that spans across the foot. If a tibial nerve is damaged, it can cause severe ankle pain for the individual, as well as limit their ability to complete certain tasks.
Luckily, tarsal tunnel syndrome has a variety of treatment options available; from conservative methods to surgical options for more severe cases. The dedicated healthcare professionals at BEST Health System will work with you to decide what treatment option fits in with your lifestyle.
