Heel Pain / Accupuncture

Posted by Sandy C on 10/05/03 at 20:33 (132356)

I have heel pain in both heels but more so in the back portion of my left foot.
I have been told by an accupucture therapist that they can treat this within 3 or 4 treatments. I am willing to try anything but wanted to know if there were any chance of making the pain worse?

Is this your first line of treatment? Have you read the heel pain book.

You are scaring the lemon dog mess out of everybody on this board. Now not to worrie I have no futher future plans of ventering on this board. But let me get the last word in if you don,t mind. Why don,t you get off your feet and take a rest? and while your at it take a long vaction.

I shouldn't have said that, sorry. But LEAVE DR. Z ALONE!! He donates huge amounts of his time to help people with foot pain and he doesn't deserve to be verbally abused for it like you just did.

Sandy C., I ain't no doctor but I have had some success with my accupunture treatments. To read about it, you can do a search under my name and accuputure.

Hope this helps. I might add though I have seen more than one podatrist, wear orthotics and get weekly Physical Therapy with a Chiropractor. I also do some stretching and have a foot massager (vibrates).

I think it is best to combine both Western & Eastern Medicine myself.
My 2 cents. ;)
