AbstractBackground: A gradual degenerative condition of the plantar fascia of the foot is called plantar fasciitis. This pain is frequently relieved with resting, elevation, and deep tissue massage. Anti-inflammatory drugs have been a mainstay in the management of plantar fasciitis. Low-Dye taping is a popular conservative therapy for plantar fasciitis. A dry needle is used to stimulate the myofascial trigger points in the plantar fasciitis. Objective: To determine the effects of low dye taping with and without dry needling on pain and functional disability in athletes with plantar fasciitis. Method: It was a 6-month randomized clinical trial conducted at the Pakistan Sports board, Lahore and Sports complex, Jhang. A total of twenty athletes were sampled by use a convenient sampling technique and then randomly assigned to one of two groups: group A provided with Low dye taping and conventional treatment plan along with needling, and group B provided Low dye taping and conventional treatment plan. Data was gathered at baseline and after six weeks, by using Numeric pain rating scale and functional foot index questionnaires. Results: Results were analyzed using SPSS version 25 software and after checking normality by Shapiro wilk test, parametric tests were applied. Results shows significant decrease in functional disability and pain on that group who were on group A. Conclusion: Low-Dye tape along with dry needling and conventional physiotherapy was effective in alleviating the painful symptoms of plantar fasciitis as well as decrease functional disability of foot in athletes. Key words: Functional foot index, Dry needling, low dye taping, Plantar Fasciitis.
