Relief at Your Feet: Acupuncture Treatments for Plantar Fasciitis
Understanding Plantar Fasciitis:
Plantar Fasciitis is a common foot condition that causes pain and inflammation in the heel. It occurs when the thick band of tissue (the plantar fascia) that supports the arch of the foot becomes strained, leading to discomfort and stiffness.
It commonly causes stabbing pain with your first steps in the morning. But as you start to move around, the pain and stiffness subside. The same pain and stiffness can occur after standing or sitting for long periods of time.
Benefits of Acupuncture for Plantar Fasciitis:
When it comes to Plantar Fasciitis, acupuncture can target key meridians and acupuncture points associated with foot health, aiming to reduce inflammation and pain.
