Plantar fasciitis involves pain and inflammation of the band of tissue running across the sole of the foot, the plantar fascia.
A patient came into clinic 8 weeks ago with severe plantar fasciitis, he was unable to put any pressure on his left foot, and as a result had not been to work for a week. The pain was worse the first thing in the morning and after sitting for prolonged periods of time. He described the pain as 9/10.
He was treated using acupuncture and electro-acupuncture and after 2 treatments he noticed that he was walking better, his pain was 4/10, which enabled him to go back to work.
After 4 treatments his pain had reduced to 2/10 and now 8 weeks on he has reported he is totally pain free.

If you suffer from Plantar Fasciitis or heel pain why not give acupuncture a go, it could work wonders!!
