Care Plan


First steps to consider

  • Tarsal tunnel symptoms—like pain, numbness, tingling, swelling, and weakness in the foot—can often be treated at home.
  • Take OTC pain relievers and use ice to reduce swelling and inflammation.
  • Wear an ankle brace or sleeve for support.

When you may need a provider

  • Symptoms do not improve after 2–3 weeks of home treatment.
  • You develop severe pain or weakness (foot drop).
