ABSTRACT:
The aim of the study is to determine the efficacy of barefoot exercise vs. common footwear exercise in subjects with plantar fasciitis. An objective of the study is to find the efficacy of barefoot exercise versus common footwear exercise on pain with numerical pain rating scale among subjects with plantar fasciitis and to find the efficacy of barefoot exercise versus common footwear exercise on balance outcome measure for elder rehabilitation (BOOMER) among subjects with plantar fasciitis. Methodology: 20 patients with plantar fasciitis were selected based on the inclusion and exclusion criteria. The collected data were tabulated and analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics. To all parameters mean and standard deviation (SD) was used. Paired t-test was used to analyze significant changes within the groups. Unpaired t-test was used to analyze significant changes between the two groups. It has been concluded that barefoot exercise (GROUP A) is more effective than common footwear exercise (GROUP B) in decreasing pain, and increasing balance in subjects with plantar fasciitis.
