Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) and Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome (TTS)

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) and Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome (TTS)

Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is a condition in which the median nerve is compressed as it enters the hand through the carpal tunnel. Signs and symptoms include pain, burning/tingling, numbness, weakness, and/or impaired sensation in the part of the hand that receives sensation from the median nerve. Pain may extend to the forearm and shoulder. Causes include injury/trauma or swelling from tendinitis, neoplasm, RA, and/or masses such as ganglia.

Tarsal tunnel syndrome (TTS), also known as posterior tibial neuralgia, is a compression neuropathy in which the tibial nerve is compressed as it enters the foot through the tarsal tunnel. Signs and symptoms include pain, burning/tingling, numbness, and/or electrical sensations over the base of the foot and the heel. Causes include injury/trauma, disease, and/or the natural shaping of the foot.

We use peripheral nerve blocks to treat carpal tunnel syndrome and tarsal tunnel syndrome.
