The tarsal tunnel is found along the inner leg behind the medial malleolus.
The tarsal tunnel is made up of bone on the inside and the flexor retinaculum on the outside.
The posterior tibial nerve, a major artery, veins, and tendons travel in a bundle along this pathway, through the tarsal tunnel. In the tunnel, the nerve splits into three different paths.
