Ask the Doctor

Q: Is acupuncture effective in relieving plantar fasciitis. I have been suffering from heel pain for years and how found no treatment yet.

A: Some patients with plantar fasciitis have seen significant reduction in their pain with acupuncture. Since each patient is unique, their symptom presentation must be evaluated carefully to determine what conditions precipitated the pain, continue to aggravate the pain and alleviate the pain. I approach this condition with the idea of examining lifestyle changes that will work with the acupuncture to alleviate the pain.

Q: Will acupuncture help with frequent wakefulness during sleep?

A: Insomnia is a common problem. It appears in two basic forms with a few variations. Frequent waking is normally due to an excessive condition within the body. Normally, this turns out to be the result of some type of stress event. For this condition I often include Chinese herbal formulas along with acupuncture points to treat both the stress and calm the patients Spirit.

Q: I have weak kidneys, low blood pressure and poor blood circulation. How can acupuncture help me?

A: These conditions are actually related. The Kidneys and Heart have a strong relationship within Chinese medicine. There are specific acupuncture and herbal treatments that help to nourish and strengthen these organs to alleviate the signs and symptoms of weakened kidney and heart functions.
