Abstract: [Objective] To observe the short-and mid-term effectiveness of medical exercise rehabilitation training combined with International College of Biomechanics(ICB)orthopedic insoles on plantar fasciitis with low arches. [Methods] Totally 60 cases of plantar fasciitis with low arches were randomly divided into observation group(30 cases) and control group(30 cases),and all patients in two groups received same general medical exercise rehabilitation training. The patients in the observation group were treated extra by wearing shoes with ICB orthopedic insoles. The VAS(visual analogue scale)and FAAM(foot and ankle ability measure,including activities of daily living subscale and motor ability subscale) were assessed before treatment,or 1 month,6 months,and 12 months after treatment. [Results] There was no significant difference of both VAS and FAAM between two groups of patients before treatment. After the treatment the VAS and FAAM of all patients improved at 1 month,6 months,and 12 months after treatment,compared with those before treatment(P < 0.01). However,the improvement of VAS at 6 months and 12 months after treatment,and the improvement of FAAM at 1 mouth,6 months and 12 months after treatment among the patients in the observation group were significantly superior to patients in the control group(P < 0.01). [Conclusion] The therapeutic effect of medical exercise rehabilitation training plus orthopedic insoles on plantar fasciitis was confirmed,which not only could help patients improve the plantar pressure,but also correct the lower limb biomechanics.
