Answer

Compression of the branches of the posterior tibial nerve is a common cause of refractory heel pain and is the most common compression neuropathy seen in the foot and ankle region. Nonoperative management of compression of the posterior tibial nerve involves relief of the source of external compression (if any), use of medication, and correction of weightbearing deformities.
