Abstrakt

Plantar heel pain may be attributed to a painful overloading of the plantar aponeurosis at its insertion of processus calcanei. Conservative treatment is the "golden standard". If it fails, partial fasciotomie is indicated but carries risks and complications. In the present work the use of a dorsal night splint with continuous extension of the big toe was evaluated in patients with refractory plantar fasciitis.15 patients with an unsuccessful conservative treatment of plantar fasciitis (>12 weeks) were included in the study and treated with the dorsal night splint over a period of 6 month. Clinical assessment was performed using Foot Function index (FFI) and AOFAS-Rear-Foot-Score.The benefit of the night splint was rated with a 1.4 grade and the comfort of the splint with 2.9. The pain subscore of FFI increased with 30 points, the functionality subscore with 28 points. The AOFAS score raised with 28 points.Overall the dorsal night splint with continuous toe extension is an alternative for treatment of refractory plantar fasciitis. © 2013.
