Acupuncture is an ancient holistic practice that started in China thousands of years ago. It involves inserting (small) needles into specific points of the body so as to balance the body’s energies.
Acupuncture for those who might have Morton’s Neuroma may be a viable treatment option and is an option worth looking at prior to taking more aggressive action, such as surgery.
For a number of reasons, acupuncture can help. Firstly, if the condition is not actually Morton’s Neuroma, but some other foot condition, acupuncture may be able to assist—in some cases right away! Secondly, because acupuncture looks at the way the body functions as a whole—needles can be placed on site and at other points on the body to assist in overall healing. For instance, by stimulating the release of endorphins, acupuncture can reduce pain and speed up healing. Thirdly, acupuncture can speed up tissue regeneration by reducing inflammation.
These are only a few of the ways that acupuncture can help. Look into it, it might really provide relief from your Morton’s Neuroma and other foot problems.
