Intérêt des différentes techniques triggers dans la prise en charge des contractures au niveau du Système Tricipito-Achilléo-Calcanéo-Plantaire

Abstract : Background: Muscle contractures are injuries of everyday life, often present in a long-lasting way and often neglected and untreated. They can be responsible for the modification of posture and motor pattern. Pre-existing treatments and protocols seem to be too long and triggering techniques are presented as a new therapeutic tool in the management of muscle soreness. This literature review targets the region grouping the sural triceps and the plantar fascia under the name of tricipito-achilleso-calcaneo-plantar system in order to highlight the relationship that exists between these 2 structures which seem to be different. Objective: To evaluate the effectiveness of triggers in the management of contractures in the tricipito-achilleso-calcaneo-plantar system. Methods and results: The databases used were PubMed, PEDro, Kinedoc and the Cochrane Library. They allowed the collection of articles dealing with this subject over a period of 10 years (2010). A total of 62 articles were analyzed and 4 were included. These 4 articles included a total of 331 patients on whom data concerning foot pain, foot function and quality of life were collected. Conclusion: Trigger techniques have been shown to improve pain (and foot function) in the short to medium term. The ischemic compression technique provides slightly inferior results to dry needling. PNE provides better results over time.
