How Can Acupuncture Relieve Plantar Fasciitis?
Acupuncture is an effective therapeutic method for treating the symptoms of plantar fasciitis. The acupuncture needles are inserted at the base of the foot and several nerve endings. This activates the body's neurotransmitters and regulates pain and inflammation.
Plantar Fasciitis is an inflammatory condition that manifests in the bottom of the foot. This disorder usually starts to surface in people between the ages of 40-60. Although the exact trigger is unknown, there are several theories.
Experts believe Plantar Fasciitis is caused by strain on the bottom part of the heel and front of the foot. This causes tear lines along the ligament connecting the back of the foot to the front portion (the "plantar fascia").
Some experts believe stresses cause this on the base of the foot. These include:
- Running long distances
- Aerobic activities
- Being overweight
- Standing for long periods
- Pre-existing conditions such as flat foot
Although the causes are multifaceted, treatments are relatively standard. They include physical therapy, pharmacological treatments, and massage therapy. However, these treatments are insufficient for most who suffer from the disorder.
Acupuncture is an excellent treatment for plantar fasciitis since it releases the body's natural endorphins. These endorphins elevate mood and decrease pain. Acupuncture will also reduce inflammation, a common contributing factor to pain from plantar fasciitis.
Can Acupuncture Help with Plantar Fasciitis?
Acupuncture has successfully been tested on many sufferers to treat and relieve pain and inflammation.
Plantar fasciitis is not a chronic disorder and can be helped through therapy and other treatments. Although most people suffer from this most of their lives, it is possible to reverse some of the side effects.
