As nerves travel through the body, they go through fixed anatomical points, or tunnels. If the nerves are swollen due to damage, or if the tunnel is too small, it results in a pinched or entrapped nerve.
An entrapped nerve can affect different areas of the feet, resulting in shooting pain, burning and tingling, and increased sensitivity.
Pinched nerves in the top of the foot are often the result of shoes that are too tight, swelling in the feet, or blunt trauma.
Another common form of nerve entrapment in the feet is tarsal tunnel syndrome. Tarsal tunnel syndrome is the entrapment of the posterior tibial nerve as it passes through the tarsal tunnel, located in the ankle area. This results in painful symptoms radiating from the instep and heel areas to the soles of the feet.
The cutting-edge nerve decompression was designed to treat entrapped nerves, pinched nerves, and tarsal tunnel syndrome through a minimally invasive procedure, potentially making your foot pain a thing of the past. Call us today to learn more and schedule a consultation.
