ABSTRACT:
Plantar fascitis is one of the most common cause of heel and foot pain, calcaneal taping technique places the foot in improved biomechanical position by re-positioning the calcaneal alignment closure to neutral and increasing the medial longitudinal arch height, thus reduce stress and pain. Hence this study is proposed to determine the effect of calcaneal taping technique in plantar fascitis. Total of 30 subjects diagnosed with planter fascitis was selected according to the inclusion and exclusion criteria and informed consent were obtained from the subjects involved in the study. Subjects were consecutively allocated to 2 Groups of 15 subjects each by odd and even method. Subjects in Group A (Conventional) was treated with ultrasound along with plantar fascia stretching. Group B (Experimental) was treated with ultrasound along with plantar fascia stretching and calcaneal taping technique. Patients were measured for pain with Numerical Pain Rating scale (NPRS), and functional ability measure with foot and ankle ability measure (FAAM). From statistical analysis made with the quantitative data revealed statistically significant difference between Pretest and posttest values of Group A and Group B. it has been concluded that ultrasound therapy along with plantar fascia stretching and calcaneal taping technique (Group B-Experimental group) was found to be more effective than ultrasound therapy and plantar fascia stretching (Group A-conventional group) reduces pain in the heel and increasing functional ability of the foot.
