TTS caused by taping? DPM DAVIS OR Z OR WANDERPosted by David Digiacomo on 4/26/04 at 16:06 (149581)
I had previosly taped my foot for pf for a month straight back in 9/03. I taped it 8 hours a day to provide support when i walked my mail route. The taping was sports tape from a pharmacy and it did go around the inside ankle and 7 months later i have pain still in that area which is even present at rest. My NCV test showed minimal slight nerve irritation. Can taping cause Tarsal tunnel syndrome? I did not think the tape was too constricting and have you ever seen this in your years in practicing podiarty? Also i have been told it is a combinatoin of tenosynovitis/tendonitis TIBIAL NEURITIS. cAN THIS LAST last 7 months? I
HAVE YET TO FIND RELIEF.

I have never seen this before but that doesn't mean it isn't possible. Taping the foot in an inverted position can cause TTS problems. This would simulate an inversion sprain which can cause TTS pain/problems.
