Expert Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome Care at Central Florida Foot & Ankle Institute

Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome can cause significant discomfort and impact your mobility. At Central Florida Foot & Ankle Institute, we specialize in diagnosing and treating this condition, using a blend of advanced techniques and personalized care to help alleviate your symptoms.

Understanding Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome

Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome occurs when the tibial nerve is compressed as it travels through the tarsal tunnel on the inner side of the ankle. Similar to carpal tunnel syndrome in the wrist, this condition can cause pain, numbness, and tingling in the foot.

Symptoms of Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome

  • Tingling, burning, or a sensation similar to an electric shock
  • Numbness in the sole of the foot
  • Pain radiating from the inside of the ankle downward
  • Symptoms often worsen with activity

Our Approach to Treatment

Our comprehensive treatment plan may include:

  • Conservative Therapies: Rest, ice, compression, and elevation (RICE), along with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) for pain relief.
  • Physical Therapy: Exercises to reduce pressure on the nerve and strengthen the surrounding muscles.
  • Orthotic Devices: Custom shoe inserts to correct foot posture and alleviate pressure.
  • Injection Therapy: Corticosteroid injections to reduce inflammation and pain.

Advanced Treatment Options

Should conservative treatments not provide sufficient relief, we may consider:

  • Surgical Intervention: Tarsal tunnel release surgery to decompress the nerve and relieve symptoms.
  • Ultrasound Therapy: To reduce inflammation and promote healing.
