    Author(s): Nabila Khan*, Shyamasundar laxman G and Niranjan Mallanaik

    Background: Plantar fasciitis is the most common cause of chronic heel pain in adults. Plantar fasciitis is caused by biomechanical overuse from prolonged standing or running. Purpose: To compare the plantar fascia thickness and compressibility index of symptomatic foot and asymptomatic foot with sonography in patients diagnosed with unilateral plantar fasciitis. To document the consistent sonological findings in patients with clinically diagnosed plantar fasciitis. Methods: 60 Patients who were diagnosed clinically with plantar fasciitis of single heel were taken in the study. A lateral radiograph of the involved heel, blood tests, body mass index in kg/m2 were analyzed and subjected to sonography of bilateral heel to check the plantar fascia thickness, heel pad thickness, and compressibility index.
