Abstract: Background Tarsal tunnel syndrome is a lower extremity compressive neuropathy that is also referred to as posterior tibial nerve dysfunction neuropathy. Varicosities, pedal edema, diabetes, ligament laxity, and arch drop are associated problems that commonly occur in the third trimester of pregnancy and result in the posterior tibial nerve being compressed in the tarsal tunnel. The most common symptoms are pain, sensory disturbances, which include numbness, burning, and tingling sensations in the sole of the foot, and reduced functional ability. Strengthening exercises and nerve mobilization techniques can be used to reduce pain and improve functional ability. So, the purpose of this study is to find the effectiveness of strengthening exercises and nerve mobilization in reducing pain and improving functional ability in tarsal tunnel syndrome among pregnant women. Methods This experimental study recruits 60 pregnant women in third trimester as convenient sampling from SMCH hospital. The participants those met the criteria were allocated randomly to experimental group (nerve mobilization and strengthening exercise) and conventional group (strengthening exercise). The visual analogue scale and foot function index were used as outcomes measures and the significance was set as p ˂ 0.05. Result The participants in the experimental group showed a significant improvement p ˂ 0.0001 in pain and foot functions compared with participants in the conventional group. Conclusion The findings concluded that there was a definite and positive effect of nerve mobilization along with strengthening exercises on pain reduction and functional ability in pregnant women with tarsal tunnel syndrome.
