Acupuncture for Relief of Plantar Fasciitis
Plantar fasciitis is often felt
as a sharp pain in or near the heel of one foot. It is caused by an
inflammation or degenerative process affecting the connective tissue
which supports the arch of the foot. Usually, the symptoms of plantar
fasciitis are worse in the morning and improve with walking. In many
cases, this condition is brought on by overuse. Sometimes a new or
increased exercise routine can trigger this condition.
How We Can Help
Many cases of plantar fasciitis resolve on their own with time, but
sometimes they do not. Because the condition is now believed to be
associated with a degenerative process (which could cause lasting
damage), it seems appropriate to begin treatment promptly.
Maryland Holistics provides acupuncture
which can significantly reduce the pain associated with plantar
fasciitis and promote healing. In our experience, most patients respond
with complete or near-complete recovery within 3-4 sessions at our
We have served exercise trainers and marathon runners with this
condition and in these cases we have achieved rapid results within a few
sessions. We have also served elderly clients with plantar fasciitis,
and we observe that healing often takes somewhat longer with the
increased age of the patient.
