massaging the tarsel areas?

Posted by Buck T. on 12/29/03 at 17:07 (140868)

I've had surgery on one foot and ESWT on the other for pf. Been massaging bottom heels, arches and metatarsels.

Read in posts you shouldn't massage tarsel areas. Not sure about where tarsel areas are and problems involved with massaging them. Need infomration. Thanks,

Paul: Thanks. See that I not only didn't know what it was -- but didn't spell it correctly.

One shouldn't massage directly over the tarsal area....especially if you have tts. It will make it worse. Unfortunately I had to learn the hard way.
