Background and aims: Plantar calcaneal spurs are common however their pathophysiology is
poorly understood. This study aimed to evaluate the outcome of corticosteroid injection and
ultrasound usage.
Methods and materials: We chose124 subjects, divided into two groups. One treated by
corton and the other received ultrasound waves. Pain levels after treatment were compared
between these two groups.
Results: We had no significant differences between pain level of these two group but detected
major differences among before and after position. BMI more than 30 also could increase pain
level.
Conclusion: Both of the methods could be used as non surgical treatments. But more study
needed to evaluate more about these methods.
