  Title Conservative management of a case of tarsal tunnel syndrome [case report]
Journal J Can Chiropr Assoc. 2010 Jun;54(2):100-106
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report
Abstract/Notes Objective: This case study was conducted to evaluate the treatment and management of a patient presenting with chronic foot pain, diagnosed as tarsal tunnel syndrome.

Case: 61 year old female presenting with plantar and dorsal foot pain and burning sensation of 6 months duration.

Treatment: Treatment was initiated using custom orthotics only for the first ten weeks of care as the patient did not follow up or initially respond to follow up calls placed by the practitioner. A course of highvelocity, low-amplitude adjustments using a toggle board to the cuboid and the talonavicular joint and fascial stripping was added upon report from the patient that the orthotic therapy alone did not resolve the symptoms. Improvement of pain reported on the Verbal Rating Scale was noted with a complete resolution of the condition at the conclusion of treatment. No pain was reported on a ten month follow up with the patient.

Conclusion: Conservative management, including orthotics, manipulation, and fascial stripping may be benefi cial in the treatment of tarsal tunnel syndrome.
