Background Shock-wave therapy (SWT) has been widely applied and proven to be an effective
treatment in ameliorating symptoms of plantar fasciitis (PF). Ultrasound therapy (UT)
is another common treatment of PF, and several researches have documented its
advantages when compared to corticosteroid injection. Despite this, few studies
have focused on comparing the use of SWT and UT in the treatment of PF.
Objective The purpose of this meta-analysis is to evaluate whether SWT is better than UT in
managing PF, both in terms of ameliorating pain and improving functionality.
