Moreover, the occurrence of the tarsal tunnel syndrome on the side affected by disc disease is much higher than on the unaffected side (13.

TABLE 1 Differential diagnosis for runners' foot paint (2-5) Symptom Differential diagnosis Foot pain ** Compartment syndrome ** Metatarsalgia * ** Nerve entrapment ** Neuroma (Morton's neuroma) ** Plantar fasciitis ** Stress fracture of the foot * ** Tarsal tunnel syndrome
Heel pain ** Achilles rupture ** Achilles tendinopathy * ** Calcaneal stress fracture ** Fat pad atrophy ** Haglund deformity ** Plantar fasciitis * ** Retrocalcaneal bursitis ** Tarsal tunnel syndrome
* Represents a more common diagnosis.
The cause of tarsal tunnel syndrome
can be identified in 60-80% of cases, the most common causes being trauma (17%), varicosities (13%), heel varus (11%), fibrosis (9%), and heel valgus (8%).
Outcome of surgical treatment of tarsal tunnel syndrome
It could be: 6 Tarsal tunnel syndrome
, when the nerve to the foot is trapped in the tight band that holds structures in place around your ankle.
Posterior tibial tendonitis/dysfunction and tarsal tunnel syndrome
are best classified as medial in location (FIGURE 1C).
The differential diagnosis of RS3PE syndrome includes rheumatoid arthritis (RA), complex regional pain syndrome, gout arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), systemic sclerosis, overlap syndrome, mixed connective tissue disease, polyarteritis nodosa, amyloidosis, pseudogout disease, and carpal and tarsal tunnel syndromes
