Acupuncture Treats Plantar Fasciitis

This week seems to be the week for Plantar Fasciitis in my Acupuncture Clinic. For those who have never experienced it, plantar fasciitis can be defined by pain the bottom in the foot close to the heel characterized by sharp stabbing pain felt when pressure is applied or after standing for long periods of time. In more technical terms, it's defined as inflammation (and pain) of the connective tissue (plantar fascia) between the heel and the ball of the foot. Conventional treatment includes cortisone shots, stretching, and physical therapy. Recovery is slow and can take months to even years. The good news is that acupuncture can both reduce pain and speed recovery of this painful condition. In our clinic, we use acupuncture in addition to cold laser therapy to reduce pain, decrease inflammation, and accelerate tissue repair rates. Feel free to give us a call if you're interested in treating this painful condition at www.hiddenrhythmacupuncture.com
