What is Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome?

footTarsal Tunnel Syndrome results from the compression or entrapment of the posterior tibial nerve as it exits the leg and enters the foot. Three large tendons, and an artery and vein, also use this tunnel which is formed by ligaments.  Repetitive motion or trauma can result in inflammation and compression of this nerve. Symptoms will include radiating pain to the toes or up the leg with motion of the foot, sweating abnormality to the affected foot, and possible temperature changes.  This syndrome is similar to Carpal Tunnel, which is found in the wrist.
