Abstract: A case of tarsal tunnel syndrome in a male collegiate lacrosse player is presented. The subject reported symptoms consistent with tarsal tunnel syndrome following two incidents of medial ankle sprain in one lacrosse season. Conservative treatment was successful following the first ankle sprain but failed to relieve pain and paresthesia in his heel and medial arch following the second injury. Laboratory tests provided an inconclusive diagnosis, and the subject underwent a retinacular release 5 months after the second ankle sprain. Following a 13-week rehabilitation program, the subject returned to full participation in his sport.
