Methodology: The study was conducted on 32 diagnosed (17 male and 15 female) patients with plantar fasciitis between the ages of (20-35) years with BMI 25.83±3.29 kg/cm², based on inclusion and exclusion criteria. The posterior tibial nerve (sliders & tensioners) mobilization intervention along with conventional physiotherapy was given to the patients for 2 times/week for 3 weeks. The pretest- posttest clinical variables (pain, foot function & dorsiflexion Range of motion) were measured. Results: At 95% of confidence interval, the findings suggest that there was a significant improvement in the mean change scores of FFI, VAS after 2 weeks and dorsiflexion ROM after 1 week in both groups (p value<0.05). However on comparing between groups, group A had more improvement in FFI, VAS after 2 weeks and dorsiflexion ROM after 1 week.
