The results of the study indicate that tarsal tunnel syndrome is a pathologic condition in which there are multiple etiologies, which in some cases are poorly defined. In order to arrive at a definitive diagnosis, all available tests, including pathology reports, are important. Where proper diagnosis is made and followed with appropriate adjunctive care, the probability of recurrence will be minimized. Statistical information in itself is of some value, because it may help the podiatrist to more clearly diagnose and treat the patients in whom vague or general symptoms may exist.
