    Following initial assessment, subjects were randomly and equally assigned to one of the two intervention groups.

    Pain was significantly reduced after using orthoses; there was no significant difference between two types of orthoses in the reduction of the heel pain (p=0.23).

    No control group, no significance difference between the two interventions tested.
    So all we can tell from this study is that PF tends to get better with time which I think we know already.
