Surgical Decompression: A Path to Relief
When conservative treatments such as rest, physical therapy, and orthotics fail to provide relief, surgical decompression may be recommended. The goal of this procedure is to alleviate pressure on the posterior tibial nerve within the tarsal tunnel.
Key Aspects of Surgical Decompression:
- Incision: A small incision is made along the inner ankle to access the tarsal tunnel.
- Release of Structures: During surgery, any structures that are compressing the nerve, such as ligaments or adjacent tissue, are carefully released.
- Nerve Evaluation: The surgeon ensures the nerve is free from compression and has adequate mobility.
- Closure: After decompression, the incision is closed, and the foot is bandaged.
