Ibuprofen Cream for Tarsal

Posted by M. Beck on 5/31/05 at 12:37 (175936)

I am pretty sure I have tarsal tunnel syndrome. I have begun to apply Scott's Pro Z relief Ibuprofen cream to the area right below the 'ankle knot' where the tarsal tunnel is. I thought if there were inflamation in the tarsal tunnel this might take down the inflamation. It may or may not be working, not sure. But I don't want to cause a reduction in blood flow or anything else that might hurt. Any thoughts on whether this is a safe practice?
