PODIATRIST DISCUSSES TARSAL TUNNEL SYNDROME

Tarsal tunnel syndrome is a condition in which a nerve known as the posterior tibial compresses while traveling through the tarsal tunnel, reports Johns Hopkins Medicine. It is similar to carpal tunnel syndrome but affects the ankles and feet.

How it's diagnosed: Patrick McEneaney, DPM, a podiatrist at Northern Illinois Foot & Ankle Specialists, tells Health it can "cause numbness, burning, and tingling that goes down the side of the ankle into the bottom of the foot and the toes." According to Johns Hopkins Medicine, it can be diagnosed through electrical testing or imaging such as a CT scan.
