Abstract
Objective: To compare the effectiveness of MET and Cyriax (Transverse Frictional Massage) on pain and function in patients with chronic plantar fasciitis.
Background: There is limited study available that supports that MET and Cyriax can be used in treatment of chronic plantar fasciitis.
Study Design: Comparative Study.
Methods: Ethical clearance was taken from college and consent was taken from the 40 subjects diagnosed with chronic plantar fasciitis and divided into 2 equal groups by random chit method. Pre and Post outcome measures of NPRS (Numerical Pain Rating Scale) for pain and FAAM (Foot and Ankle Ability Measure) for function were taken. Group A underwent MET and self-stretching and Group B underwent Cyriax and self-stretching. Self-stretching includes stretching of plantar fasciitis, gastrocnemius and soleus muscle.
Results: Mean values for NPRS was 2.3±0.47 and 3±0.45 for Group A and Group B respectively. Mean values for FAAM was 12.49±5.95 and 20.05±5.06 for Group A and Group B respectively.
Conclusion: In the present study it was found that Cyriax along with self-stretching was significantly more effective on pain and function than MEt along with self-stretching in patients with chronic plantar fasciitis.
