Acupotomy for calcaneodynia: A systematic review protocol.

Abstract Calcaneodynia customarily induces inferior heel pain, specialists believe that the pain is principally caused by acute or chronic injury due to the plantar fascia from accumulative overload pressure. Acupotomy has been widely used to treat calcaneodynia. But its efficiency has not been scientifically and methodically evaluated. The aim of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of the acupotomy treatment in patients with calcaneodynia.

AB  - BACKGROUND: Calcaneodynia customarily induces inferior heel pain, specialists
      believe that the pain is principally caused by acute or chronic injury due to the
      plantar fascia from accumulative overload pressure. Acupotomy has been widely
      used to treat calcaneodynia. But its efficiency has not been scientifically and
      methodically evaluated. The aim of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and
      safety of the acupotomy treatment in patients with calcaneodynia. METHODS:
      Relevant randomized controlled trials in 6 databases (PubMed, Embase, and
      Cochrane Library, Chinese literature databases, Chinese Biomedical Literature
      Database [CBM], China National Knowledge Infrastructure [CNKI], and Wanfang
      Database). The randomized controlled trials (RCTs) of the acupotomy for
      calcaneodynia patients will be searched in the databases from inception to
      December 2017 by 2 researchers. Visual analog scale (VAS) will be assessed as the
      primary outcomes. Roles and Maudsley Score (RM) will be assessed as the secondary
      outcome. The RevMan V.5.3 will be used for meta-analysis. Continuous outcomes
      will be presented as the mean difference or standard mean difference, while
      dichotomous data will be expressed as relative risk. RESULTS: This study will
      provide a high-quality synthesis of VAS and RM to assess the effectiveness and
      safety of acupotomy for calcaneodynia patients. CONCLUSION: This systematic
      review will provide evidence to judge whether acupotomy is an effective
      intervention for patients with Calcaneodynia.
