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.
Thank you for watching this video. If you have any questions about treatment of Plantar Fasciitis using Chinese medicine, please send us an email at info@artofacupuncture.com.au

Treating Arthritis: A Chinese Medicine Approach

Acupuncture for Arthritis

Acupuncture for Arthritis

Western medicine and Treatment

According to The Current Medical Diagnosis, Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic systemic inflammatory disease whose major manifestation is synovitis of multiple joints. The cause is not known.Untreated, rheumatoid arthritis causes joint destruction with consequent disability and shortens life expectancy. Early, aggressive treatment is the standard of care.

Patients usually wake up complaining of stiffness in affected joints (usually hands and feet.) Deformities are common as the disease progresses. MRI and imaging usually find narrowing or joint spaces and osteoporosis along with joint erosion. Patients may also complain about dry eye and nodules forming over bony prominences.

 NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatories)  provide some symptomatic relief in rheumatoid arthritis but do not prevent erosions or alter disease progression. Large dosages of these drugs over time can cause gastro-intestinal ulcers and bleeding in the stomach. Steroids such as Prednisone may also be used but over time this too can lead to osteoporosis.

A Chinese Medicine Approach 

Acupuncture Therapy

According to Chinese Medicine, Rheumatoid arthritis is classified as wind dampness pathogen. Contributing factors such as  long living in a damp environment and contraction of wind, cold, for long periods of time affect the joints. Because blood flow is unable flow properly to that area for long periods of time, energy gets “stuck.” The goal of treatment of RA would be to expel wind and dispel dampness pathogens and warm the channels of the body.

Shoulder Pain Acupuncture Treatment Instant Relief Scalp Points

Shoulder Pain Acupuncture Treatment Using ZSA (Zhu Scalp Acupuncture)

I recently have been getting quite a bit of shoulder pain patients come in and we have been using the scalp system to get rid of pain. Originally, the patient could not lift his arm above his head the first session. The shoulder was hurt from playing football. He was getting ready for a surfing trip and decided to give acupuncture a try. After the first session he was able lift his arm and was even able to paddle during surfing which he was not able to do for over 8 months. I’s hard to get rid of 100% of the pain in one session but we were able to make great progress with this type of old sports injury. This was the second treatment:

Scalp Acupuncture: Mom’s Neck Pain

Instant Neck Pain Relief Using Zhu Scalp Acupuncture 

 

One of the best times of the year is when my Korean mother in law comes to town. She’s cooks the best food, takes care of the kids, and we get along great. I don’t speak Korean and she does not speak English so there’s nothing to argue over.

However, she’s been suffering from severe neck and shoulder pain from many years of working so hard. She had a very stiff neck to begin with and the flight over to Australia was very long as well. The pain was along the Du,GB,BL,LI & Sj channels.  We decided to do scalp acupuncture first. After needling the areas over hypothalamus (part of the brain responsible for controlling pain/ motor sensory) and neck area scalp points we had her do some breathing and stretching exercises and after about 5 minutes half the pain was gone.

We kind of hit a wall after that and the pain wouldn’t budge. The neck was alot looser and free but the pain along the Trap and shoulder was still there. We included opposite side Lv4 (shu stream point for pain) and same side San Cha San (Sj2) and Sj3. After a few more stretches and several minutes later the pain was completely gone.

The pain came back but much lower the next day and it will probably take a few more treatments along with plenty of stretching and exercises.
