Top 3 Pain in the Inside of the Foot Causes

  1. 1.Posterior Tibialis Tendinopathy

    Posterior Tibialis Tendinopathy is the dysfunction of a tendon (muscles to bones) in the back of the foot, which can lead to having flat feet. It's unclear why exactly it happens, but might be related to poor blood flow and mechanical issues specific to the person.

    You should visit your primary care physician, who can diagnose this condition by clinical interview and exam. Treatment is conservative and involves a cast, over-the-counter pain medications like ibuprofen, and orthotic footwear. Surgery is a last resort.

    Symptoms that never occur with posterior tibialis tendinopathy:

  2. 2.Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome

    The tarsal tunnel is a narrow space that lies on the inside of the ankle next to the ankle bones. Tarsal tunnel syndrome is a compression, or squeezing, on an important nerve called the posterior tibial nerve. This compression produces symptoms anywhere along the path of the nerve running from the inside of the ankle into the foot.

    You should visit your primary care physician who will coordinate your care with a muscle and bone specialist (orthopedic surgeon). Tarsal tunnel syndrome is treated with pain medication, corticosteroid injections, stretching, icing, physical therapy, and also special orthotic inserts for shoes.

    Top Symptoms:
    spontaneous foot pain, pain in one foot, heel pain, pain in the top of the foot, tingling foot
    Urgency:
    Primary care doctor
  3. 3.Kohler Bone Disease

    This is a rare disease of unknown cause. In Kohler disease, the navicular bone (one of the bones of the foot near the ankle) loses its blood supply. The living tissues of this bone die due to lack of oxygen and nutrients.

    You should visit your primary care physician to confirm the diagnosis with an X-Ray. Usually no treatment is needed, however. A weight-bearing cast may improve symptoms, so it is recommended for you to use one for 6-7 weeks.

    Rarity:
    Rare
    Top Symptoms:

    Symptoms that always occur with kohler bone disease:

    Symptoms that never occur with kohler bone disease:

    Urgency:
