Acupuncture Case Study: Young Athlete with Plantar Fasciitis

This patient was a 16 year old male basketball player. He had developed significant heel pain that was hindering his game and causing him to lose his mojo for the game.

I treated him 3 times, using trigger point acupuncture on extremely tight muscles in the calf. He experienced significant twitching during the procedure and left slightly sore.
The following week, he reported significant improvement .

Two more triggerpoint treatments totally rid him of any heel pain and he was happily back to basketball.
