ABSTRACT

Objectives : Plantar fasciitis is most common cause of heel pain which starts from anterior tubercle of calcaneus. It is chronic inflamation of plantar fascia, reduces collagen and water content of heel pad which incur the degenerative changes with elastic fiber weakness. We have evaluated the effect of myofacial releasing therapy and acupuncture therapy by experimenting two patients suffering from plantar fasciitis. Methods : Two patients were diagnosed as plantar fasciitis through their symptoms. We used myofacial releasing therapy and acupuncture therapy to the patients and measured VAS(Visual analogue scale). Results and Conclusions : After treating myofacial releasing therapy and acupuncture therapy in two cases, We figured out that the patients were on the mend. These results suggest that myofacial releasing therapy and acupuncture therapy were effective to heel pain.
