Massage Therapy & Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome
Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome
Do you have foot numbness or pain in your feet? You could have a condition known as Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome. Massage Therapy along with Body Work are exceptionally powerful in treating conditions emerging from muscle and connective tissue anomalies. Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome reacts well to massage treatments.
Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome is a painful entrapped nerve condition. The posterior tibial nerve is put under abnormal pressure by the connective tissue shaping the tarsal tunnel, the tendons space at the inside ankle and the lower leg muscles. The structures in that space, like tendons from lower leg muscles. When the muscle tendons passing through the tarsal passage tend to become enlarged and tight, you then get pain from the myofascial trigger points, knots in the muscle, and weight on the back tibial nerve which passes through the tarsal shaft. The pain from Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome is generally found in the ankle, heel, and sole of the foot. Also, there may be a pins and needles feeling in sole of the foot and the toes. More often than not these symtons are on one side, yet may affect both sides too.
There are numerous ways that massage therapy can help to treat Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome.Neuromuscular Therapy or Trigger Point Therapy to nuetralize myofascial trigger points and releive pressure in the flexor muscles whose tendons pass through the tarsal passage. Myofascial Release works on the muscles and fascia which can improve flexibility. Deep Tissue Massage helps in releasing chronic muscle tension by physically breaking down any adhesions to relieve pain and restore normal movement.
