Acupuncture for Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis is an inflammatory condition of the plantar fascia which is a thick, fibrous ligament that runs along the bottom of the foot and connects the heel to the front of the foot. Someone with plantar fasciitis will experience intense pain at the bottom of their heel; in some cases, pain can radiate up the leg causing discomfort in the ankle and calf.

Proprioception and Knee Pain

In 2006 approximately 250 million people worldwide were diagnosed with Osteoarthritis (OA). OA is characterized by degeneration of the joint cartilage and underlying bone, leading to joint pain, stiffness, and physical disability.


The iliopsoas is actually two muscles: the psoas and the iliacus. The psoas originates from the vertebrae T-12 vertebrae (the vertebrae where the lowest rib attaches) down to L-4. The iliacus muscle comes from the inside of the hip bone. Once the two merge, they attach to the top of the femur (thigh bone), on the inner surface.

Feeling run down or generally fatigued lately? Not hitting paces in workouts that felt like no problem a few weeks ago? Resting heart rate higher than usual or increased shortness of breath while running? It could be a sign of iron deficiency or anemia. Because these symptoms sound similar to COVID, iron deficiency and anemia have been flying under the radar.

The inside of my knee hurts and nobody knows why

Medial knee pain can be a frustrating injury. It may look simple and straightforward, but it’s actually pretty complex. You could be dealing with a strained muscle or tendon above or below the knee, a sprained ligament of the knee (such as the MCL), bursitis at any of the many bursa in the knee, a meniscus injury or nerve entrapment, to name a few.
