Wearing special splints or taking drugs often are hit-or-miss methods of relieving plantar fasciitis, a condition in which the tendons that connect the heel to the front of the foot become inflamed. Plantar fasciitis’ persistent stabbing pain in the sole or heel can sideline the weekend athlete or make a stroll in the park unbearable.
Aligned Modern Health uses acupuncture as part of a program of plantar fasciitis treatment that heals irritated tendons relatively fast. You’ll be moving pain-free after a few relaxing sessions under the care of one of our certified acupuncturists.
Acupuncture, which originated in China 2,500 years ago, reduces pain through the use of needles inserted at certain points in the body. The needles are inserted a few millimeters into the skin to stimulate a process of healing.
There’s no need to be nervous about the needles used in acupuncture. Aligned Modern Health’s acupuncturists use very fine needles made of stainless steel. Discomfort is minimal.
In conjunction with acupuncture, weight control and muscle-stretching techniques are used to
greatly reduce the chances of inflammation returning.

HOW TO TELL IF YOU NEED PLANTAR FASCIITIS TREATMENT

Runners or people who are overweight, on their feet for extended periods, or roll their feet inward while walking are more likely to get plantar fasciitis.
