The pain of a post tibial nerve entrapment can be excruciating, and since we use our feet for standing and walking, an expedient solution is vital. Surgery can seem like that solution and sometimes surgery for this problem is successful – but other times it’s not.
Let’s look at how these common foot structures can cause a post tibial nerve entrapment and why – if you have a Rothbarts Foot or PreClinical Clubfoot Deformity – surgical intervention for this problem is a not in your best interest:
How A Post Tibial Nerve Entrapment Is Created
As you walk, both the Rothbarts Foot and PreClinical Clubfoot Deformity will make your feet excessively pronate (twist). This foot twist can compress your post tibial nerve, which is located under the inner ankle bone. This compression entraps the nerve and the result can be a sharp, piercing pain.
Pain From A Post Tibial Nerve Entrapment Can Be Resolved Without Surgery
Post tibial entrapments are often surgically treated by releasing (cutting) the soft connective tissue around the entrapped post tibial nerve in an attempt to reduce the compression on the nerve. However, cutting this soft connective tissue can result in scarring and hardening of the tissue. If this occurs, the post tibial nerve is pushed up against the inner ankle bone by hard connective (scar) tissue instead of soft tissue. This results in more pain.
If you have a post tibial nerve entrapment, this problem can be resolved without surgery, simply by correcting your foot twist. This is done by the use of Rothbart Proprioceptive Therapy.
