Denver Acupuncture Foot Pain Treatment Works Best
Do the bottoms of your feet hurt when you walk barefoot? Even when you wear shoes? That pain is called plantar fasciitis. Do the balls of your feet hurt? How about your heels or big toes? Do you have burning sensations in your feet and possibly your legs? The burning is often caused by something called neuropathy. Or maybe you get foot cramps at night? As you can see, there are many types of foot pain. The only constant is that acupuncture is excellent at treating them all. Each condition needs a different type of acupuncture treatment. We determine your treatment based on the type of pain you have.
Denver Acupuncture Foot Pain Treatment for Plantar Fasciitis
Let’s start with pain on the bottom of the feet. This is called plantar fasciitis. It is often in the heels, but can also be in the arches. It’s common for runners to develop this type of pain, as well as people who stand on hard surfaces all day long. Firefighters, hair dressers, police officers are all susceptible to this condition. Acupuncture can resolve this pain in three to six treatments. It is fairly miraculous to see. And the treatment does NOT involve needling into the bottom of the foot. That would resemble torture, and we’re not in the torture business. No, your treatment for plantar fasciitis will be very comfortable and relaxing. You may even fall asleep on the treatment table.
Denver Acupuncture Foot Pain Treatment for Sore Toes
During hiking season in Denver we get a lot of patients with sore big toes. We have excellent results resolving big toe pain. While the treatment for toe pain differs from the plantar treatment, the treatment principle is the same. All pain is caused by qi stagnation, which is energy not flowing smoothly through the channels of the body. If the idea of qi flowing through channels is difficult to wrap your mind around, think instead of blood flowing through arteries and veins. Poor blood circulation will also cause pain. Acupuncture gets both the qi and blood flowing properly again, resolving pain in the process.
Denver Acupuncture Foot Pain Treatment for Neuropathy
Burning sensations in the feet (and often into the legs) is called neuropathy. This type of foot pain once again is treated differently than the other types of foot pain, but also with great success. Neuropathy is most common in people with diabetes, but it can affect those without diabetes as well. In fact many cancer survivors have neuropathy as a side effect of the chemotherapy they received during their cancer treatment. Acupuncture resolves neuropathy quite effectively.
