Heel pain left untreated may become chronic, leading to inflammation, swelling and irritation of the local tissues involved. Routine daily activities may feel quite painful as a result and pain may spread to involve other areas of the body, including calf muscles, knees and the other foot.
In a systematic review published in 2012 researchers found good evidence that demonstrated that acupuncture treatment can be an excellent option for heel pain and plantar fasciitis. The evidence for acupuncture treatment of heel pain and plantar fasciitis was equal in strength to conventional treatments for heel pain, including corticosteroids.
