tarsal tunnel. Job related?

Posted by William on 9/14/02 at 18:48 (095342)

I was diagnosed with planter ficitis about 2 years ago. I recently had a nerve conduction test done and it was dignosed as having tarsal tunnel. I fell off of a platform at work when I missed the step. I landed hard on my feet and espcially my left foot then my body twisted and I ended up on my back. I went to my Medical DEpt at work and reported the injury. At that time I only reported that my hip hurted because my feet always hurted anyway. After a week went buy I began to exsperience very severe pain on the bottoms of my feet espcially the left foot. In your opinion could this type of accident cause (tarsal tunnel) or arch pain. Do you know any foot Doctors in the Lima,OH area? I am in a great deal of pain.

It is possible for the tarsal tunnel syndrome to be work related. I don't know any of the podiatrists in Lima personally. One resource for referrals is http://www.acfas.org
