Top Washington D.C., Maryland, and Northern Virginia Orthopedic Surgeons Specializing in Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome (Posterior Tibial Neuralgia)
This condition, also called TTS, affects the tibial nerve in the ankle. This nerve is a branch of the sciatic nerve. It passes from the leg down to the foot. Just below the bony bump on the inner side of the ankle, it passes through a small space called the tarsal tunnel. TTS is a compression of the nerve within this tunnel.
