Heel spur and acupuncture


Acupuncture is one of the alternative treatments for heel spur/ plantar fasciitis, and it can be quite successful. Should standard methods fail to work, you might give this a try.

The treatment basically involves placing needles that target the meridians running along your feet and legs (especially along the calf muscles). Sometimes the back is treated as well, as according to acupuncture theor, the cause of the injury does not necessarily lie in the same part of the body as the pain is experienced.

If the treatment catches on, then just a few treatments may be sufficient. Usually you should expect to receive 5-10 treatments, of 20-30 minutes each.
