Individuals who overexert themselves while exercising, repeat certain harmful motions with their feet, or have poor arch support may develop a condition known as Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome. According to physical therapist Steve Miller, the most common indicator of Tarsal Tunnel is a shooting, burning pain in and around the ankles and the bottoms of the feet.

Tarsal Tunnel is sometimes hard to identify at first because its symptoms are similar to so many other foot disorders. Once diagnosed, soft tissue massages and nerve glides can help ease the discomfort associated with this condition by reducing the pressure being placed on the nerves in the foot.

Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome is often difficult to deal with without professional help. If you are experiencing the symptoms of Tarsal Tunnel, talk to podiatrist Dr. Michael A. Stein, DPM of Foot Doctor of the East Bay. Dr. Stein will use all the resources at his disposal to help you make a full recovery.

Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome

Tarsal tunnel syndrome, which can also be called tibial nerve dysfunction, is an uncommon condition of misfiring peripheral nerves in the foot. The tibial nerve is the peripheral nerve in the leg responsible for sensation and movement of the foot and calf muscles. In tarsal tunnel syndrome, the tibial nerve is damaged, causing problems with movement and feeling in the foot of the affected leg.

Common Cause of Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome

-Involves pressure or an injury, direct pressure on the tibial nerve for an extended period of time, sometimes caused by other body structures close by or near the knee.
-Diseases that damage nerves, including diabetes, may cause tarsal tunnel syndrome.
-At times, tarsal tunnel syndrome can appear without an obvious cause in some cases.

The Effects of Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome

-Different sensations, an afflicted person may experience pain, tingling, burning or other unusual sensations in the foot of the affected leg.
-The foot muscles, toes and ankle become weaker, and curling your toes or flexing your foot can become difficult.
-If condition worsens, infections and ulcers may develop on the foot that is experiencing the syndrome.
