This study was done to compare the effectiveness of group receiving combination of plantar fascia stretching, tendo Achilles stretching and ultrasound with group receiving plantar fascia stretching and ultrasound alone in plantar fasciitis.
An Experimental study.
Thirty participants with the clinical diagnosis of plantar fasciitis were randomly allocated in two groups. Group ‘A’ received plantar fascia stretching, tendoAchilles stretching and ultrasound and Group ‘B’ plantar fascia stretching and ultrasound. The outcome was assessed in terms of Visual Analogue Scale, Foot Function Index and Range of Motion of Ankle.
When VAS, FFI and Dorsiflexion ROM mean scores for within the groups and between the groups was analyzed, there was statistical significant difference for within the groups and there was no statistical significant difference between the groups.
There was no significant difference in comparison of the effectiveness of group receiving combination of plantar fascia stretching, tendoachilles stretching and ultrasound with group receiving plantar fascia stretching and ultrasound alone in plantar fasciitis on Outcome measures.
