Effective Treatment for Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome

At The Functional Podiatrist, we are dedicated to providing you with the most advanced and effective treatment options for tarsal tunnel syndrome. Our approach is rooted in the latest research and evidence-based practices to ensure the best possible outcomes for our patients.

Our Comprehensive Treatment Protocol:

1. Accurate Diagnosis: We begin by conducting a thorough evaluation, including a detailed medical history, physical examination, and, when necessary, nerve conduction studies or imaging to precisely diagnose tarsal tunnel syndrome.

2. Customised Care Plans: Recognising that every patient is unique, we create personalized care plans tailored to your specific condition, taking into account the location and severity of the nerve entrapment.

3. Conservative Management:

a. Orthotics: Our custom orthotic devices are designed to provide optimal support and alignment, reducing pressure on the tarsal tunnel and alleviating symptoms.

b. Hands on Therapy: Our skilled physical therapists will guide you through a structured rehabilitation program, including:

Stretching and Strengthening: Targeted exercises to improve flexibility and strengthen supporting muscles. Manual Therapy: Hands-on techniques to alleviate muscle tightness and improve joint mobility. Nerve mobility Exercises: Specialised exercises to enhance nerve mobility and reduce compression.

4. Modalities: We may employ modalities such as ultrasound, electrical stimulation, or cold therapy to complement your treatment plan and ease pain and inflammation.

5. Medications: When necessary, we may recommend non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) or pain medications for short-term relief.

6. Corticosteroid Injections: In cases of significant inflammation, a targeted corticosteroid injection into the tarsal tunnel can provide relief, though we use this option judiciously due to potential side effects.

7. Activity Modification: Our guidance will help you adapt your activities and footwear to minimize stress on the affected foot and promote healing.

8. Patient Education: We believe in empowering our patients with knowledge about their condition, appropriate footwear choices, and self-management techniques to support their recovery.

9. Monitoring and Surgical Consultation: Regular follow-up appointments allow us to monitor your progress closely. If conservative measures do not yield the desired results, we will explore surgical options and coordinate your care with trusted surgeons.
