What's Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome?

Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome may be the name of a painful nerve entrapment condition, in which the posterior tibial nerve is placed under abnormal pressure by the connective tissue forming the tarsal tunnel at the interior of the ankle and the other buildings because space like tendons from lower leg muscles. When the muscle tendons passing through the tarsal tunnel become limited and enlarged, pain results from myofascial trigger points (knots) in the muscle, and pressure on the posterior tibial nerve which passes through the tarsal tunnel. Pain from Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome is normally present in the ankle, heel, and sole of the base. Additionally, there could be numbness or a pins and needles feeling in sole of the base and sometimes the feet. The majority of the time the symptoms are on a single affected side, but might affect both sides in the same time.
