Plantar Fasciitis Identification with Shear Wave Elastography

Sarah Ridge, PhD; Wayne Johnson, PT, PhD; and Dustin Bruening, PhD

Do you suffer from Plantar Fasciitis or know someone who does? Do you ever wonder what causes the pain?

Researchers at Brigham Young University are interested in understanding changes that occur in the plantar fascia after plantar fasciitis develops. We’re looking for participants to help.

Participants should be:
- symptomatic with clinically diagnosed plantar fasciitis
- healthy, with no history of plantar fasciitis
- 18 years or older
- free from any other lower extremity injury for the past 3 months

Participants in this research study will have their measurements taken of their feet using ultrasound and will perform simple foot and calf stretches. All testing will be done in the BYU Ultrasonography Lab (292 SFH) and will be completed in 2 hours.

You will receive $30 cash for your participation in this study.
