Tarsal tunnel syndrome (TTS) can be treated through a variety of conservative methods if addressed quickly. Never ignore pain in your feet and ankles, because loss of feeling or tingling and burning can be symptoms of a serious problem such as a compressed nerve. After a complete evaluation and diagnosis, anti-inflammatory medications or injections may be recommended. Custom orthotics are often used to decrease stress on the affected tibial nerve. Of course, putting your feet up and resting is another vital piece of the puzzle.
If symptoms persist, or if you have let them go on unaddressed, a surgical procedure such as a tarsal tunnel release may be necessary. Amazingly, the ligaments will reattach as they heal, providing relief and strengthening your foundation. At Houston Foot and Ankle Specialists, foot surgery experts Dr. Craig H. Thomajan DPM, FACFAS and Dr. Shine John DPM, FACFAS are here to treat tarsal tunnel syndrome and help you find relief from your discomfort.
