The primary objective of this study was to establish whether there is a plantar pressure difference between patients, with and without diabetic neuropathy.
The effect of a program of self-care home exercises consisting of stretching and strengthening exercises on the range of motion (ROM) for the ankle and other foot joints, was evaluated.
Eighty patients with type II diabetes mellitus (DM) were recruited for the study.
Demographic features of the patients, recent treatment of DM and physical examination findings were noted.
The ROMs for the ankle and first metatarsophalangeal joints of both feet, of each patient, were measured three times using a manual goniometer.
