Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome
Medical Considerations for Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome
Suspected tarsal tunnel syndrome is usually diagnosed by your doctor or a foot specialist using physical and laboratory tests. In addition to asking about the symptoms above, your doctor may test whether you can curl your toes, push your foot down or twist your ankle inward. Laboratory tests may include x-rays, electromyography, nerve biopsy and nerve conduction tests.
Complications of the syndrome may include foot deformity, loss of movement and/or sensation in the toes, injury to and/or loss of sensation in the leg.
