A study to compare the effect of elastic anti pronation taping technique versus space correction taping technique in female subjects with medial tibial stress syndrome
Author(s): Dr. Sukumar Nayak, Dr. Manjunatha A and Dr. Preethish Kumar Thakur PT
Abstract: In a foot that is over pronated the movement of the limb takes more energy to propel the weight of the body. This can cause foot and leg fatigue secondary to overuse of muscles. Pes planus feet have been associated with tibialis posterior. One of the primary functions of the tibialis posterior is to contract eccentrically throughout the deceleration phase of foot pronation. If it is dysfunctional it cannot effectively control the force that must be transferred from foot to the lower leg. Leading to its instability control the falling of the arch. Sixty Subjects were selected based on Inclusive and exclusive criteria and an informed consent was taken from the subjects. Pre and post treatment pain sensitivity was taken as perceived by the visual analogue scale. Pre and post treatment score of range of motion of ankle dorsi flexion was taken prior to the treatment by Goniometer.
