What is Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome?

Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome is a condition in the foot that is result of abnormal pressure on a nerve. This painful condition is similar to carpal tunnel syndrome, which is experienced in the wrists. Tarsal tunnel syndrome isn’t as common as carpal tunnel syndrome, which sometimes makes it difficult to diagnose. The tarsal tunnel is located in the bottom portion of the inside of the ankle and runs through the bottom of the foot. Inside this tunnel, a series of nerves, an artery, and tendons pass through. Inflammation within this region causes nerve compression which results in pain and discomfort.
