Abstract
Background: Planter fasciitis is a common problem characterized by deep pain in the planter aspect of the heel. Although usage of both LASER and Ultrasound on its treatment , we does not know which of them is the best effect.
Purpose: To investigate the effect of Low Level LASER versus Ultrasound on Myofascial Trigger points of Planter Fasciitis. Methods: 45 patients with age ranged (30-45) years, from both sexes were participated at this study. They are arranged randomly into 3 equal groups. Group A study group received U.S on trigger points of P.F group B received LLLaser therapy on trigger points of P.F Group C. controlled group received only therapeutic ex. pain intensity level measured by visual analogue scale (VAS), pain pressure threshold PPT of trigger points was measured by digital algometer. All variables was measured pre and post 6 weeks of treatment (3 sessions / weeks for 6 weeks). (Results): All the outcome measurements had shown significant improvement in 3 groups (P<0.05): but, there is obvious improvement in group B which received Low Level LASER Therapy so, we can say that low level LASER effect is better than ultrasound in myofascial trigger points treatment. (conclusion): LLLT could be the most effective method to decrease pain intensity and pain pressure threshold of trigger points of planter fasciitis compared with treatment with U.S and selected physical therapy programs.

Key words: Planter Fasciitis, Low Level Leaser therapy, Ultra Sound, Trigger point.
