TARSAL TUNNEL SYNDROME

TARSAL TUNNEL SYNDROME:- Tibial nerve after giving origin to sural nerve is continued as posterior Tibial nerve. It supplies plantar flexors of foot and toes. When it passes through the tarsal tunnel it gives off calcaneal branches and divides into lateral and medial planer nerves which supply the small muscles of the foot and cutaneons supply to the skin of foot and toes. When posterior Tibial nerve is compressed there will be pain, tingling numbness, paresthesia over the whole of the plantar aspect of the feet except over the heel. Plantar nerves when compressed may give rise to similar features. Muscle weakness is difficult to recognise.

Treatment : Surgical decompression.
