What is tarsal tunnel syndrome?

Tarsal tunnel syndromeTarsal tunnel syndrome is the painful pinching or compression of an important nerve that runs down the leg, behind the bump on the inside of your ankle, and to the underside of your foot. Many things can trap and pinch this nerve, including previous injuries to the ankle. Sometimes this condition can result in ankle or heel pain, which may lead to an inaccurate diagnosis of the problem.

Treating plantar fasciitis when you have tarsal tunnel will not help your heel feel better! At Podiatry Associates, P.C. we work hard to make the correct diagnosis before starting your treatment so that we do not waste your time. Making your pain go away quickly is a top priority. Using cutting-edge diagnostic imaging and techniques, our doctors will work with you to determine the best path forward for healing.
