Acupuncture for Achilles pain

Acupuncture for Achilles pain 

Keen long distance runner presented with chronic Achilles pain. He pulled his Achilles when he was still a child and has had issue with it since. There is considerable discomfort during running. It feels tight first thing in the morning and after sitting in a fixed position for too long. Sitting cross legged, climbing stairs can cause pain too. He also experiences sporadic leg cramp in bed.

Pain level improved substantially after three sessions of regular acupuncture. After six sessions of treatments, patient was able to run with no discomfort at all. Mild discomfort still presented when crossing legs. Patient then completed a half Marathon with no issue after three further treatments and no longer experienced any pain in Achilles.
