Sushreesangita Nayak | Srikanta Moharana [2]

Abstract: Retro calcanealbursitis presents a difficult clinical challenge. The purposes of this study were to 1) describe a new orthotic device used in the treatment of Retro calcanealbursitis and 2) evaluate the effectiveness of this device. The orthotic device consisted of a pad with strap. Three criteria were considered: 1) subjective pain scale, 2) active goniometric measurements, and 3) Toe raise test. The statistical analysis indicated a significant improvement in pain during activity from initial to follow - up and in pain after activity from initial to follow - up. All patients demonstrated improved strength and flexibility. It was concluded that this device may be an effective adjunct to the treatment of retro calcaneal bursitis.
