Re: Ankle Sprain And Sinus Tarsi Syndrome

Sinus tarsi syndrome is usually a nerve entrapment in the area on the lateral side of the talocalcaneal joint. You can push your thumb into the hole or sinus. It contains a ligament that connects the talus to the calcaneus, a sensory nerve and a plug of fat. It can sometimes be involved in an ankle sprain.

Sometimes this area needs an injection of cortisone. Sometimes an orthotic or ankle brace works. As far as guessing about the healing, I can't really say since I did not examine you.
