Conquering Plantar Fasciitis with Acupuncture: Dr. Lisa's Healing Touch

Plantar fasciitis, a term that might not mean much until you've felt its debilitating pain firsthand. Especially for runners and active individuals, this condition can be a significant setback, transforming every step into an excruciating reminder of the body's limits. But what if the road to recovery could be as natural and balanced as the body's own energies? Enter Dr. Lisa at Lighthouse Acupuncture and Wellness Center, where ancient wisdom meets modern healing practices to bring relief to those suffering from plantar fasciitis.


Understanding Plantar Fasciitis


Before we explore the solution, let's dive into the problem. Plantar fasciitis is an inflammation of the plantar fascia, a thick band of tissue that runs across the bottom of your foot, connecting your heel bone to your toes. Symptoms often include a sharp, stabbing pain in the bottom of the foot near the heel, making those first morning steps feel like walking on nails. While the exact cause can vary, factors such as excessive running, inadequate footwear, and abnormal foot mechanics play significant roles.
