Acupuncture is an effective treatment for plantar fasciitis and any foot pain.

“If you have plantar fasciitis, Abba is the cure. In six weeks I went from a pain level of 10 to virtually pain free. Acupuncture does not hurt, and it is not expensive.” – Robin Van Gorp, Springfield, Missouri

“I cannot believe how quickly acupuncture resolved the pain in my heels – the pain in one foot was reduced by half after the first treatment, and after six sessions, I am 90% pain free. My doctor told me I’d have no relief without surgery!” – Jackie Mayo, Springfield, Missouri

Plantar fasciitis is one of my favorite things to treat because it responds so well to acupuncture. Clients usually experience significant pain relief with the first treatment, and usually feel their pain is resolved with 8 weekly treatments. Plantar fasciitis causes heel and foot pain that can limit how much you can walk and exercise. Mild heel discomfort can develop into more severe pain, so it’s best to get in for acupuncture while your pain is still mild.

Plantar fasciitis literally means inflammation of the plantar fascia, which is the connective tissue that stretches from the heel to the toes on the bottom of each foot. Plantar fasciitis is typically one-sided, or worse in one foot than the other.

Most cases of plantar fasciitis eventually improve without treatment, but if your foot pain is preventing you from doing things you want to do, acupuncture can usually improve your quality of life immediately. My clients typically experience decreased pain from the first treatment and only require eight treatments to resolve their foot pain completely. Sometimes the pain will recur in a year or two. If the pain does recur, a few acupuncture treatments are usually enough to get you back to pain-free walking and exercising.
