Struggling with Heal Pain

The main benefit of acupuncture treatment for heal pain is a reduction in pain and/or reduction in inflammation.

Evidence, from 29 studies published by Harvard Medical School, shows acupuncture to be highly effective in pain relief.

Acupuncture relieves pain in several ways:

  1. Endorphin production
  2. Blocking of nervous pain signals to the brain
  3. Trigger point deactivation
  4. Stimulation of soft tissue repair
  5. Release of associated calf muscle tension/dysfunction
