Clinical Trial Summary

Inflammation of the plantar fascia is called plantar fasciitis and is common in active or overweight individuals. It can be treated conservatively or surgically. Extracorporeal shock wave therapy has shown significant efficacy in the treatment of plantar fasciitis. Repeated chronic inflammation of the plantar fascia may lead to fibrous edema, thickening and even calcification in the fascia, resulting in thickening of the plantar fascia in patients with chronic plantar fasciitis and affecting the mechanical properties of the plantar fascia (changes in elastic modulus) ). Previous studies rarely involved changes in the elasticity of the plantar fascia before and after extracorporeal shock wave treatment.
