Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome

The tarsal tunnel is a space which the tibial nerve passes through to go into the bottom of the foot. Other structures also pass through this space including the tibialis posterior tendon, flexor hallucis longus and flexor digitorum longus.

If any of these structures become inflamed, or the soft tissues around it become inflamed, then you may develop burning, numbness or tingling symptoms in the forefoot or heel.

This can also be confused with problems occurring in your spine, so always make sure that you practitioner has checked for this.
