Our Award-Winning Physicians Can Help Treat & Relieve Your Nerve Pain
You’ve probably heard of carpal tunnel syndrome, a painful condition caused by compression of a nerve the runs through the wrist. The same kind of condition can also happen to a nerve running through your ankle. This is called tarsal tunnel syndrome, and can be quite painful.
The tarsal tunnel lies on the inside of the ankle and is covered with a thick ligament that protects and secures the arteries, veins, tendons, and nerves pass through to the bottom of the foot. One of these structures is the posterior tibial nerve. When this nerve is squeezed or compressed, the result can include numbness, tingling, and burning pain extending to the heel and sole of the foot.

Tarsal tunnel syndrome is important to diagnose and treat as early as possible. If left untreated the condition can progress and may result in permanent nerve damage.
