Abstract
Objective: To study the efficacy of corticosteroid injection as treatment modality in management of plantar fascitis.
Methodology: A total of I50 patients of both the genders diagnosed as a case of plantar fascitis were included in study. Patients above the age of 25 years with pain for more than 6 weeks were included and patients with pain secondary to trauma, infection or tumors were excluded from the study. Final results were evaluated by comparison of Visual analog score (VAS) for pain before the corticosteroid injection, immediately after the injection, after the interval of 15 days, I month and 3 months.
Results: Out of 150 patients, 95(63%) were female and 55(37%) males. Mean age was 430.707 years (range 40-49). 109 patients were overweight lying in range of 25-29.9 BMI. Mean BMI was 28.40.212. Mean VAS for pain before the corticosteroid injection was 9.48, and immediately after the corticosteroid injection mean VAS was 1.02 and at 15 days, 1 month and 3 months it was 1.89, 2.21 and 2.52, respectively.
Conclusion: Corticosteroid injection is an effective option for the management of plantar fascitis, as it dramatically reduced the pain in these patients.
