Plantar Fasciitis and Microcurrent Stimulation

canstockphoto0209512Plantar fasciitis is a very common problem. The usual diagnosis given for this issue is when the person complains of foot pain with walking. The usual treatment for plantar fasciitis, besides the use of anti-inflammatory medications such as ibuprofen, is the use of special inserts for the shoes.

People often spend hundreds if not thousands of dollars for these custom inserts. Most people we see in our office have had four or more sets of these inserts. While they may bring some relief, they often have only a minimal effect on relieving the pain or improving endurance on how far a person can walk before they suffer pain. Many of the inserts are quite hard and rigid, causing additional pain and discomfort for people.

Microcurrent stimulation therapy and acupuncture, together with some gentle exercises when the pain begins to subside, continues to prove to be a very useful, simple and safe treatment for plantar fasciitis. This condition often requires a significant number of treatments, but the treatments are relatively painless and the improvements are very long-lasting
