Clarification on "Releases"

Posted by Darlene on 8/19/04 at 14:28 (158423)

When we talk about releases for tts (posterior tibial nerve, calcaneal nerve, medial and lateral planter tunnels), does this always refer to the cutting of ligaments?

If so, what purpose do these ligaments serve? Does the word 'releasing' sound more benign than it really is?

Doctors - how often have you seen successful tt releases personally?

I've read through lots and lots of posters here and have seen few if any 100% successes.
