Heel Pain & Acupuncture

Typical treatment including resting, stretching, orthotic devices, splinting, oral medication, injective medication, and surgery.

Although the cause of heel pain varies, however, in traditional Chinese medicine, heel pain is a direct result of the movement and flow of qi and blood in the affected area obstructed and the channels and vessels lose their nourishment. Traditional Chinese medicine believes when energy flows through the meridians freely, there is no pain.
