Acupuncture for heel and foot pain from plantar fasciitis by Richard Collisson


Heel or foot pain from plantar fasciitis is a very common problem that can occur at any age, usually occuring after trauma to the foot and so typically only affects one foot , but can occur on both feet at the same time.

The plantar fascia is an extension of the Achilles tendon which runs under the heel then spreads out across the sole of the foot and inserts into the base of the toes. Its function is to provide shock absorption on the sole of the foot as well as to lift the arch of the foot when walking.
