The objective of this research is to verify the efficacy of copaiba oil therapy associated with phonophoresis in the treatment of plantar fasciitis. Twenty patients with plantar fascia calcification (calcaneal spur) were randomly selected at the physiotherapy services at the Baixada Fluminense region, Province of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Patients underwent ten phonophoresis sessions using therapeutic ultrasound associated with Copaifera officinalis oil in the affected calcaneal region.
