To Compare the Effectiveness of Muscle Energy Technique versus Myofasial Release in Pain and Lower Limb Functional Activity in Subjects Having Planter Fasciitis - A Randomized Control Trial

Background & purpose Planter fasciitis is an inflammation of planter fascia causes inferior heel pain. MET teaches Golgi tendon recep-tor to accept the longer muscle length which provide long-term relief. MFR changes the viscosity of the ground substance to a more fluid state which eliminates the fascias excessive pressure on the pain sensitive structure and restores proper alignment. Objective to find out the effectiveness of MFR and MET in plantar fasciitis, in conjunction with conventional treatment and to compare the effectiveness of Myofasial release (MFR) vs Muscle Energy Technique (MET). Method 30 subjects with the clinical diagnosis of chronic plantar fasciitis were randomly allocated by coin method into two study groups. Group A - 15 patients were given therapeutic ultrasound, foot intrinsic muscles strengthening exercises, plantar fascia stretching exercises and MFR. Group B - 15 patients were given therapeutic ultrasound, foot intrinsic muscles strengthening exercises, plantar fascia stretching exercises and MET for 10 consecutive days. Outcome measures VAS, FAAM & Pressure algometry. Result comparison of score obtained by outcome measurers between the groups shows no signifi-cant difference between MET and MFR in pain and lower limb functional activity in subjects having planter fasciitis. Conclusion As per results, both MET and MFR technique are found to be effective on pain, pressure pain threshold and on lower limb functional activity.
