The investigators study aim to evaluate the efficacy of PSU heel cushion in treatment of plantar fasciitis. The investigators will do a randomized controlled trial in patient with plantar fasciitis compared with stretching exercise alone. The outcome measurement include heel pain improvement, compliance, satisfaction, foot functional score at 6 months.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Active Control, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Single Blind (Outcomes Assessor), Primary Purpose: Treatment

The specific aim of this study is to determine whether perforating fat injections to the plantar fascia is a safe method to improve pain, quality of life, and reduce plantar fascia thickne...
Background: Plantar fasciitis is the most common cause of heel pain in runners. No studies have described the short-term effects of myofascial release on plantar fasciitis using ultrasound...
Plantar fasciitis is the most common cause of heel pain and it is diagnosed by clinically. Resting, stretching exercises, weight loss, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and physical th...
The aim of the study is to investigate the effect of extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT) on the thickness of plantar fascia measured by ultrasonographic examination among patients wit...
Plantar fasciitis is the most common cause of plantar heel pain and is commonly present in people 40 years of age or older, overweight, sedentary or with intense physical activity. It is c...
To examine associations between plantar calcaneal spurs, plantar fascia thickening and plantar heel pain (PHP), and to determine whether tenderness on palpation of the heel differentiates between thes...
Personal differences in morphological and mechanical properties of plantar fascia and heel fat pad may be an important parameter regarding an individual's balance performance. The purpose of this stud...
Our aim was to investigate the differences in pressure sensitivity over musculoskeletal and nerve symptomatic and distant areas between individuals with plantar heel pain and healthy subjects, and to ...
The plantar fascia is exposed to repetitive tensile stress induced by cyclic loads associated with daily activities, such as walking and running. Due to overuse or abnormal foot alignment, insertional...
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.
A fibromatosis of the plantar fascia characterized by thickening of the fibrous bands on the plantar aponeurosis in the sole of the foot and toes.
A bony outgrowth on the lower surface of the CALCANEUS. Though often presenting along with plantar fasciitis (FASCIITIS, PLANTAR), they are not considered causally related.
Entrapment of the distal branches of the posterior TIBIAL NERVE (which divides into the medial plantar, lateral plantar, and calcanial nerves) in the tarsal tunnel, which lies posterior to the internal malleolus and beneath the retinaculum of the flexor muscles of the foot. Symptoms include ankle pain radiating into the foot which tends to be aggravated by walking. Examination may reveal Tinel's sign (radiating pain following nerve percussion) over the tibial nerve at the ankle, weakness and atrophy of the small foot muscles, or loss of sensation in the foot.

Plantar declination of the foot.
Pain is defined by the International Association for the Study of Pain as “an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with actual or potential tissue damage or described in terms of such damage”. Some illnesses can be excruci...
