Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome: MRI crucial to look for Inflammatory Causes
If you are suffering from tarsal tunnel syndrome, you really want an MRI like this. This MRI shows inflammation of all three tendons that run within the tarsal tunnel on the medial side of the ankle. This inflammation places pressure on the posterior tibial nerve that runs within the tunnel causing nerve symptoms of pain, numbness, electric shocks, etc. If you can reduce the inflammation, create a pain free environment, and calm the nerve sensitivity down, the symptoms should get better.
