Plantar Fasciitis

What was your condition?  I came to Joni because I had plantar fasciitis in my left foot.  I had been limping for 9 months and had injured my contra-lateral hip.

What steps had you taken previously to get help?  3 shots of steroids directly into the foot and 800 mg of Advil, no relief at all.

How were you referred to acupuncture?  A woman who had avoided surgery on her hip by using acupuncture.

In your words, what did the acupuncturist do?  Joni placed needles in my foot and various other parts of my body.  In the very first visit my pain improved by 50%.  Within 4 treatments the pain was gone.

What are your hobbies?  Running & scuba

How have you improved?  I went from limping to being able to run 12+ miles per week.

Words of encouragement to others:  I cannot recommend Joni highly enough.  I have become much healthier & balanced since coming to see her.  I will continue acupuncture for the rest of my life.
