5 year foot pain being helped by A.R.T.

Posted by cindy S. on 5/20/00 at 09:26 (020643)

I have been suffering from horrible foot and knee pain for 5 years. I have spent thousands on neurologists, podiatrists, orthopedists (you get the drift). Finally, I have been a patient at a chronic pain clinic with a diagnosis of 'neuropathic pain' - cause unknown. Three days ago, I went to a new physical therapist who told me that she thought that my foot pain was caused by my hamstrings being too tight! I have had two treatments with her of this 'artficial release technique' - kind of a myofascial release massage and I seem to be feeling better! Can anyone share any similar experiences with me? Has anyone else experienced A.R.T.?
