Effectiveness of Custom-made Foot Orthoses vs Heel Lifts in Children With Calcaneal Apophysitis

2019-05-28 22:36:18 | BioPortfolio


The study was a parallel-group, randomized controlled trial with concealed allocation, blinding of investigators and assessors and intention-to-treat analysis. It examined the effect of custom-made foot orthoses and heel lifts in children with calcaneal apophysitis.

It was hypothesized that the primary outcome, pain relief, would be significantly improved with the custom-made orthosis compared to the heel lift.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Devices used to support or align the foot structure, or to prevent or correct foot deformities.

A foot deformity in which the arch of the foot is high and often the heel adducted.

Inflammation of the thick tissue on the bottom of the foot (plantar fascia) causing HEEL pain. The plantar fascia (also called plantar aponeurosis) are bands of fibrous tissue extending from the calcaneal tuberosity to the TOES. The etiology of plantar fasciitis remains controversial but is likely to involve a biomechanical imbalance. Though often presenting along with HEEL SPUR, they do not appear to be causally related.

The back (or posterior) of the foot in PRIMATES, found behind the ankle and distal to the toes.

The largest of the TARSAL BONES which is situated at the lower and back part of the FOOT, forming the HEEL.
