Table 1 Comparison of plantar fascia thickness between supine and prone positions with the ankle in a neutral posture

From: Ultrasonographic examination of plantar fasciitis: a comparison of patient positions during examination

Portion of plantar heel Position p value
Supine Prone
 Medial 5.0 [4.5; 6.0] 5.1 [4.2; 6.1] 0.973a
 Central 5.1 [4.1; 5.6] 5.0 [4.2; 6.1] 0.620a
 Lateral 4.9 ± 1.0 4.8 ± 1.1 0.600b
  1. Measured thickness (mm) values are presented as median [interquartile range; 25th–75th] for non-normally distributed data or mean ± standard deviation for normally distributed data
  2. p values obtained from Wilcoxon signed rank test a or paired t-test b
  3. Significance was accepted for p values of < 0.05
