Plantar Fasciitis and Acupuncture

Plantar Fasciitis ?

Plantar fasciitis and acupuncture

You know about the pain in your foot or heel, the limping and how it goes away daily only to return.

Your foot or heel pain feels serious and debilitating. It hinders your movement and is quite painful. It stops you from doing things you love like sports, playing with kids, walking etc.

Generally, plantar fasciitis is treated by doctors in a cursory way… They tell you to use heat and massage. The sometimes suggest cortisone injections but most people get only temporary relief from the pain using these methods. Surgery is an extreme solution.

Is this you?

In my acupuncture practice, I have a very high success rate treating people with plantar fasciitis. You see, I use a muscular relief technique called trigger point acupuncture. Most acupuncturists do not do it. This technique finds unnaturally tight muscles and gets them to twitch relieving the tension and thus the pain. I give relief to almost everyone and cure about 90%. Five treatments is the average and I do not continue when the patient is not responding.

Yes, acupuncture uses needles but so do injections and with injections, the needles are much bigger. Plus, the only side effect you will have with acupuncture is muscular soreness for a few days.

Here’s a video of a treatment I did on a dancer and how I treat anyone with plantar fasciitis.

Many people have doubts about any eastern medicine. Acupuncture is licensed in New Jersey by the Board of Medical Examiners … the same group that certifies Medical Doctors. Acupuncture also requires 3 years of full time study in anatomy and physiology as well as the acupuncture concepts and techniques. No weekend “master” courses here.
