Do you suffer from unexplained foot pain? It could be a result of tarsal tunnel syndrome. Tarsal tunnel syndrome is a condition that is caused by compression of the tibial nerve (major nerve for feeling in the foot) or its associated branches as the nerve passes underneath the flexor retinaculum at the level of the ankle. Tarsal tunnel is similar to carpal tunnel syndrome of the wrist and hand. It can lead to extreme pain in the ankle and foot, making it hard to walk, or even stand.
Our podiatrists are specially trained in the delicate procedure of triple nerve decompression which helps such symptoms as pain and tingling in the feet. Call 724-375-1577 for more information on nerve decompression to treat tarsal tunnel syndrome or visit Beaver Valley Foot Clinic's website to schedule an appointment.
