Yes, there is such a thing as Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome. Most people have heard of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome in the wrist. Well, this is a very similar condition, but located in the ankle.
Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome is a nerve entrapment condition that can be very painful.
Excessive pressure on the "posterior tibial nerve" that passes through the "Tarsal Tunnel" is the source of the pain. Circulation to the tissues in the foot and toes is restricted.
Tingling in your toe and numbness on the sole of your foot is a common symptom. Some people describe a "Pins and Needles" sensation on the bottom of their feet.
Some people suffering from Peripheral Neuropathy have similar symptoms.

Yes, Far Infrared Socks can help reverse some of the problems that cause Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome. Prolotex™ Socks emit far infrared healing rays that increase the blood flow and circulation to the tarsal tunnel area. Increased circulation will reduce pain and inflammation, effectively relieving the pressure on the nerves.
Depending on the severity and cause of the nerve entrapment, some people may get faster results from Prolotex™ FIR Socks than others.
For best results, we recommend wearing Prolotex™ Socks, as often as possible, for at least 3-6 weeks. That way, the natural FIR energy has a chance to activate the cells and tissues that are "snared" up at the tarsal tunnel.
