Tarsal tunnel syndrome is a condition that involves the posterior tibial nerve. Similar in nature to carpal tunnel syndrome which normally involves the wrist and median nerve, tarsal tunnel syndrome occurs when the posterior tibial nerve gets compressed or trapped, often in an area known as the tarsal tunnel.

The entrapment or compression of the posterior tibial nerve can lead to symptoms involving the upper foot, lower foot, heel, arch, and toes. Often times, people with entrapment of the posterior tibial nerve will complain of sensations such as numbness, burning, or tingling. Sometimes, the compression of the posterior tibial nerve can lead to symptoms being felt higher than the foot, such as the ankle, so accurate diagnosis is important.
