The tarsal tunnel is a narrow space on the inside of your ankle next to your ankle bones. Tarsal tunnel syndrome is a compression of the posterior tibial nerve. If you have tarsal tunnel syndrome, you may experience any of the following symptoms on the inside of your ankle or on the bottom of your foot:

  • Tingling
  • Burning
  • Shock sensation
  • Numbness
  • Shooting pain

Those with foot injuries, flat feet, diabetes or arthritis may be at risk for tarsal tunnel syndrome. Bozeman Foot and Ankle Clinic will examine your foot to find out if you have tarsal tunnel syndrome. Call 406-587-8478 today to schedule an appointment with a foot and ankle surgeon.
