Effect of Tibial Nerve Mobilization on Pain and Functional Limitation in Subjects with Plantar Fascitis
Abstract: Aim: To determine the effectiveness of tibial nerve mobilization on pain and functional limitation in patients with plantar fasciitis. Methods: 30 subjects were recruited in the study in accordance with inclusion and exclusion criteria. The subjects in Group A received conventional treatment which included application of ultrasonic therapy, stretching of plantar fascia, gastrocnemius and soleus, strengthening exercises for ankle evertors & invertors, Toe curl exercise and heel raise exercise. Group B received Tibial nerve mobilization along with conventional treatment. Results: Unpaired t-test was used to compare the data within and between the periods. Both the treatment variables showed significant changes when compared within group whereas neural mobilization treatment proved to be more effective than conventional treatment on between the group statistical comparisons. Conclusion: Tibial nerve mobilisation was shown to be more successful than conventional therapy alone when used in conjunction with it.
