Bell’s Palsy Treatment

This was a recent Bell’s Palsy patient that came in on the third week of onset. He was not responding very well to steroidal treatment and was looking for something to help. The inflammation of the facial nerve was not very severe and we were able to get a bit more movement back in the face after the first session.

After needle insertion we had the patient mobilise the face and do specific exercises for the affected areas.

Along with herbal therapy, we were able to get some good results after 6 weeks.

Plantar Fasciitis Treatment with Acupuncture

 

Plantar fasciitis acupuncture treatment in Brisbane 

 

Plantar Fasciitis is inflammation of the plantar fascia, which is on the bottom of your foot. What happens is patients usually wake up early in the morning and their feet is really, really sore and takes about 10-20 minutes to really warm-up. They feel like they are walking in razor blades, there’s a sharp sensation at the bottom of the heel. Plantar Fasciitis is also common in runners. Roughly takes 10% of running injuries. It also accounts 11-15% of all heel pain.

Traditional treatments include Orthotics, going to Physio, doing exercises, shockwave therapy, PRP injections and these treatments are often expensive and ineffective. If you tried all these and nothing else has worked for you, acupuncture maybe an option for you.

With acupuncture, what happens is needles are placed either on the fingers, on the hands or on the scalp. This is used to stimulate the body’s limbic system. Once the body’s limbic system is stimulated the brain produces endorphins, which is your body’s natural pain killer. From then on, the patient is encouraged to move, stretch and actually do some exercises to encourage local blood flow. As treatments progressed should be able to see improvement with each and every session.
