Chicago Marathon And Acupuncture
Are you getting ready to run? Last year, a staff member from Runner’s World magazine developed plantar fasciitis (inflammation of the layer of tissue that supports the arch of the foot, got no conventional relief and decided it was time for an alternative therapy-acupuncture.
She felt some initial discomfort, but as she grew more comfortable with the process, the pain subsided. The acupuncturist also attached an electrical-stimulation device to a few of the needles. After 30 minutes, he detached the machine, removed the needles and the runner felt better-much better. She wrote, “After the second session, I went running, and there was absolutely no pain in my heel.”
