Brief Summary

As a result of glycation of collagen fibers in diabetes mellitus, an increase in thickness and stiffness is observed in the plantar fascia, which is a connective tissue. These changes in the plantar fascia affect the windlass mechanism of the foot, normal range of motion and foot plantar pressure distribution. These biomechanical effects may cause the development of diabetic foot ulcers in the later stages of the disease. We hypothesis that myofascial release technique and kinesiology taping methods have an effect on plantar fascia stiffness and plantar pressure distribution in diabetic patients. The aim of this study is to investigate the immediate effects of the two methods on the stiffness of the plantar fascia and foot sole pressure distribution in diabetic patients.

Intervention

Intervention Type: Other

Intervention Name: Kinesiology Taping Appliying

Description: Kinesiology tape will be applied to left foot plantar fascia of the participants in diabetes mellitus and control group. During taping, participants will lie in the prone position while the knee joint will be kept 90 degrees of flexion and the ankle joint in a neutral position. A "Palm Shape" taping procedure will be applied to the plantar fascia.

Intervention Type: Other

Intervention Name: Myofascial Release Technique Appliying

Description: Myofascial release technique will be applied (during 5 minutes) to right foot plantar fascia of the participants in diabetes mellitus and control group During appliying technique, participants will lie in the prone position while the knee joint will be kept 90 degrees of flexion and the ankle joint in a neutral position.
