When I was first diagnosed with Plantar Fasciitis, a pain in my heel that made every step painful, the podiatrist told me that pain reduction medication, a special padding in my shoes, and shots of steroids might help me feel less pain. He left me with an impression that I will be visiting his office for the rest of my life. I did not want to get a steroid shot and took the prescribed ibuprofen. In a few day, feeling hardly better, I have decided to visit Dr. Feng Liang’s office and consult her, thinking that perhaps there is a different approach to resolving my painful problem. After a consultation and treatment with acupuncture twice a week for 3 weeks, my pain disappeared and I have not had any for 8 months already, despite the fact that I am actively hiking every weekend and walk over very uneven terrain, whereas before I could not take a step without feeling pain on an even surface at work. I have not seen my podiatrist since, and am very glad that I am not taking ibuprofen for the rest of my life. I just feel lucky that everything worked out so well, and really thank Dr. Feng Liang for her skills and many years of experience.
