Patients show significant improvement after 3 to 4 acupuncture visits. Total treatment is up to 1 to 2 months and the improvement is stable thereafter.
Plantar fasciitis is inflammation of the thick connective tissue that runs along on the bottom of the foot. The pain is worse with rest in the morning and with over usage by the end of the day. Acupuncture quickly relieves inflammation and promotes healing. Many patients also experience relief of pains caused by heel bone spurs.
