Plantar-Fasciitis

After a medical evaluation to rule out fractures or other issues, your doctor might prescribe acupuncture to treat this condition naturally. Acupuncture has been used to treat plantar fasciitis and many other forms of foot pain, including neuromas and nerve impingement, with great clinical success. It has been traditionally used to promote the healing of fascia and tissue, reduce inflammation and swelling, and improve circulation.

 

Many patients find relief after a short course of treatment and are able to resolve their symptoms. For others who want to continue an active lifestyle, maintenance acupuncture allows some patients to return to activities that might cause flare-ups, such as running. Many incorporate other modalities such as physical therapy for strengthening, as well as chiropractic to check any alignment issues that may aggravate symptoms.

 

While everyone reacts differently to acupuncture, it has been shown to be quite effective for a large number of patients. Acupuncture encourages blood flow to certain areas of the body, which can help promote healing and reduce tension in the ligaments. Acupuncture is often a good course if you’ve tried several other treatments and are still experiencing pain as this could point to a deeper systemic issue that won’t be fixed by merely resting or using ice.

What you should know?

Acupuncture rarely ‘hurts‘. The most that people experience is a dull ache around the base of the inserted needle, or a slight tingling feeling when the needle is inserted. Points at the extremities, like toe or finger ends, can sometimes be a little sharp, but the sensation is usually brief.

Acupuncture is extremely safe if delivered by adequately trained practitioners. The most frequent side-effects are mild and include: minor bruising or bleeding, usually on needle withdrawal (3%), worsening of existing symptoms (1%) which usually lasts no more than two days and is sometimes associated with a good overall outcome; drowsiness, relaxation, or euphoria (3%) which is often experienced as pleasurable (and if so is not an adverse event!), and pain at the needling site (1%). Severe, extremely rare side-effects include a puncture lung or heart membrane (this is avoided by correct technique); transmission of blood-borne diseases (e.g. hepatitis C), avoided by using single-use, sterile, disposable needles, and skin infection (which is possible with ear acupuncture, particularly if indwelling studs are used).s
