Quote: "Many people who suffer from Carpal Tunnel Syndrome may also suffer from Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome."
Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome is very similar to Carpal Tunnel Syndrome:
Many people who suffer from Carpal Tunnel Syndrome may also suffer from Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome. Carpal tunnel syndrome is the most common form of mononeuropathy. It is more common than tarsal tunnel syndrome. Carpal tunnel syndrome is one of the most disabling work-related conditions.
Tarsal tunnel syndrome - Also known as posterior tibial neuralgia, is a compression neuropathy and a painful foot condition in which the tibial nerve is impinged and compressed as it travels through the tarsal tunnel.
Carpal tunnel syndrome - A hand and arm condition that causes numbness, tingling and other symptoms. Carpal tunnel syndrome is caused by pressure on the median nerve in the carpal tunnel in your hand.
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a hand and arm condition that causes numbness, tingling and other symptoms. Carpal tunnel syndrome is caused by pressure on the median nerve in the carpal tunnel in your hand. The median nerve gives feeling to your thumb, and index, middle and ring fingers. When tissues in the carpal tunnel, such as ligaments and tendons, get swollen or inflamed, they press against the median nerve. That pressure results in the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome.
Symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome:
Fortunately, for most people who develop carpal tunnel syndrome, proper treatment usually can relieve the tingling and numbness and restore wrist and hand function. There is no or insufficient evidence for ultrasound, yoga, lasers, B6, and exercise therapy.

The tarsal tunnel is found along the inner leg posterior to the medial malleolus. In the tunnel, the nerve splits into three different paths. One nerve (calcaneal) continues to the heel, the other two (medial plantar nerve and lateral plantar nerve) continue on to the bottom of the foot.
Tarsal tunnel syndrome, also known as posterior tibial neuralgia, is a compression neuropathy and painful foot condition in which the tibial nerve is compressed as it travels through the tarsal tunnel. This tunnel is found along the inner leg behind the medial malleolus (bump on
the inside of the ankle). The posterior tibial artery, tibial nerve, and tendons of the tibialis posterior, flexor digitorum longus, and flexor hallucis longus muscles travel in a bundle through the tarsal tunnel. Inside the tunnel, the nerve splits into three different segments. One nerve
(calcaneal) continues to the heel, the other two (medial and lateral plantar nerves) continue on to the bottom of the foot. The tarsal tunnel is delineated by bone on the inside and the flexor retinaculum on the outside.
Medications may include various anti-inflammatories such as Anaprox, or other medications such as Ultracet, Neurontin and Lyrica. Lidocaine patches are also a treatment that helps some patients.
Treatments typically include rest, manipulation, strengthening of tibialis anterior, tibialis posterior, peroneus and short toe flexors, casting with a walker boot, corticosteroid and anesthetic injections, hot wax baths, wrapping, compression hose, and orthotics.
