Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome
Tarsal tunnel syndrome symptoms include dysthesias and pain in the plantar aspect of the foot, toes, or medial distal calf. Most commonly, this is caused by a space-occupying lesion, for example, a ganglion, and therefore an MRI may be appropriate. Conservative treatment should be tried for 6–12 weeks before operative intervention. Results of operative treatment are better when a definitive cause can be confirmed by prior test.
