"As soon as we notice that certain types of events 'like' to cluster together at certain times, we begin to understand the Chinese, whose theories of medicine, philosophy, and even building are based on a 'science' of meaningful coincidences."
Marie-Louise von Franz
Are you suffering from heel pain?
Whether you have acute heel injuries with swelling, inflammation and pain; or chronic pain with an acute flare-up or chronic heel disorders with weakness, degeneration, and decreased mobility and range of motion, acupuncture can help.
Causes of heel pain can be external (sports injuries, car accidents, trauma), internal (chronic wear and tear of muscles, ligaments and tendons; bones weakened by osteoporosis), or both. Acute injuries are characterized by severe pain, swelling and inflammation, and in some cases, internal bleeding. Treatment of acute injuries by acupuncture will focus on relieving pain, reducing swelling and inflammation, and stopping the bleeding. Chronic injuries are characterized by dull pain, stiffness and numbness, and decreased muscle mass and strength. Treatment of chronic injuries includes relief of pain and restoration of physical and physiological functions.
