SINCE I HAVE BEEN COMING, MY FEET ARE WARM!!! I had an injury to my back that stopped me from enjoying what I wanted to do. My feet were so cold at night I could hardly sleep. Since I have been coming, my feet are warm, I can sleep through the night easily. I am much more flexible and I have a lot fewer bad days. Dr Joe is excellent, even amazing.

Treatment for Tarsal Tunnel - Podiatrist in San Antonio, Live Oak and Stone Oak, TX
Dr. Ed Davis discusses the symptoms, causes and treatment for tarsal tunnel syndrome.
Tarsal tunnel syndrome is one of the more common of the less common causes of heel pain. The posterior tibial nerve is the main nerve to the bottom of the foot, its fibers taking origin from nerve roots L5, S1. The posterior tibial nerve travels through a canal along the inside of the ankle on its way to the sole of the foot. It is most likely to become squeezed or entrapped in that canal, the canal also being known as the tarsal tunnel.
The posterior tibial nerve has two main branches that give sensation to the bottom of the foot, the medial plantar nerve and the lateral plantar nerve. There are some small branches given off from the posterior tibial nerve before it splits into its main two branches known as the medial calcaneal nerves. Uncommonly, the medial calcaneal nerves themselves can become entrapped causing pain right on the bottom of the heel.
The first branch that comes off the lateral plantar nerve is sometimes called Baxters nerve and can become entrapped by itself, causing pain at the base of the heel. This is termed Baxter's neuritis and its existence is somewhat controversial and unproven.
Pressure or entrapment of the posterior tibial nerve (tarsal tunnel syndrome) can be caused by scar tissue or by growths pressing up against the nerve. It has been estimated that as many as 30% of such growths include varicose veins in the tarsal tunnel. Other growths may include ganglions (fluid filled cysts) or other tumors, but rarely maligancies.
Testing for tarsal tunnel syndrome often includes an NCV, nerve conduction velocity test. If tarsal tunnel syndrome is found, an MRI may be ordered to look for the existence of a growth which may be pressing up against the nerve.

Cryoanalgesia - Podiatrist in Livingston, Edison,Ridgewood, NJ - Terry Spilken, DPM
Dr. Terry Spilken of Family Foot Care of Livingston discusses the specialized technique Cryoanalgesia.
Cryoanalgesia is a specialized technique for providing long-term pain relief for various podiatric conditions. People have recognized the value of cold for analgesia for thousands of years. Hippocrates left us the first written records of the use of ice for pain relief. Modern Cryoanalgesia as we know it today was developed in the early 1960's. This technique is superior to other methods of peripheral nerve destruction (e.g. alcohol injections, phenol applications, or surgical resection) because it is not followed by neuritis or neuralgia.
