W. Reb,et.al reviewed 6879 patients suffering from the inflammation of the
tendon of tibialis posterior,Planter fasciitis and sometimes both.The ratio of
tibialis anterior tendinitis was 1 in 11 patients of planter fasciitis.they
then compared the patients age, gender and their index of Body mass.By
comparing them they found out that there were no statistical difference in the
patients with difference diagnosis but females were effected in large
numbers.they concluded that the data they have collected, supports the
connectivity between the Foot pathologies and the obesity.
Mueller et. Al took a sample size of 10382 childrens from which 7575 were
distributed into three groups of normal weight,overweight and obese groups
according to the germen reference system. they collected the data about contact
area,arch index,peak pressure and force time integral for the fore foot,mid
foot and hind foot.
results showed higher contact area for the foot,arch index of the foot,peak
pressure and force time integral in overweight and obese childrens.
CHEN et. Al took a sample size of 59 patients in which 38 were suffering from
unilateral planter fasciitis and 21 participated in the study. They assessed
the thickening and vascularization of the planter fascia by ultrasound imaging.
They measured the pain and dysfunction
of foot using the VAS pain scale of Chinese version.They concluded
that the Individuals who suffer from
unilateral chronic plantar fasciitis showed notably better vascularity and
thickness of fascia on the affected side as compared to the side which is
L Hill, et. Al selected 4060 people
randomly by telephone in their first phase of data collection but in their
second phase they collected data from3206 peoples.they were asked about foot
pain,stiffness and also body mass index was collected .17.4% of patients
reported pain ,stiffness in their feet. Obese females of 50 years reported
hip,knee and foot pain.They concluded that 1 person from every group of 5
persons suffer from foot pain which os due to age,pain in any body region and
V, Pawar S they took the adults from age 18 to 25 suffering from pain and
obesity. They took data about their weight,age,height and also measured abody
mass index. They concluded that Increase in BMI causes abnormal effects in
normal functions of foot,increase foot pain and compromise the normal quality
C and Nester, CJ took sample of 23 healthy weight, overweight and obese aged
males.they recorded the data of height, width of right foot.they interpreted
that the feet of normal weight patients are normal while the feet of obese
persons are wider.
