Plantar fasciitis is a condition that causes pain in the bottom of your heel. It is usually worse first thing in the morning, but may last all day. It can be excruciating and keep you from doing the things you love.

Scientists believe that it is due to unhealthy changes in the tissue that supports the arch of your foot. It can can be caused by many different things, including: trauma, standing on your feet all day, repetitive overuse (like running), tight calf muscles and unhealthy movement patterns. Referred pain from muscles farther up your leg can sometimes add to or even mimic the pain.

When you come to our Acupuncture Clinic in Syracuse, we will check for muscular imbalances and trigger points that may be causing pain in your feet. Our goal is to restore normal functioning of your leg and foot. This allows your body to heal itself so that you can get back to doing what you love. I have found Matt to be knowledgeable, effective and kind. I’ve been a patient for a month and have had great results that I could not get from physical therapy, injections and pain relievers.
