The effect of mobilisations on plantar fasciitis

Do joint mobilisations facilitate the treatment of plantar fasciitis?

Plantar fasciitis (PF) is a common musculoskeletal disorder of the lower limb, with a lifetime prevalence of approximately 10%. A reduction in ankle dorsiflexion (DF) range-of-motion (ROM) has been proposed as a significant contributing factor preceding the onset of PF. The aim of the current study was to evaluate the effect of ankle, subtalar and midfoot joint mobilisations on pain and function of patients with PF.
