Stress distribution in the plantar aponeurosis

STRESS DISTRIBUTION WITHIN THE PLANTAR APONEUROSIS DURING WALKING — A DYNAMIC FINITE ELEMENT ANALYSIS SHIH-CHERNG LIN et al Journal of Mechanics in Medicine and Biology Quote: Excessive and repeated loading of the plantar aponeurosis (PA) is believed to be the most likely risk factor for developing plantar fasciitis. This study provided a novel approach to investigate the biomechanical responses of the PA during the entire stance phase of gait. One healthy subject was recruited for all the experimental measurements to validate the approach in this study
