Acupuncture is a treatment based on Chinese medicine -- a system of healing that dates back thousands of years. At the core of Chinese medicine is the notion that a type of life force, or energy, known as qi (pronounced "chee") flows through energy pathways (meridians) in the body. Each meridian corresponds to one organ, or group of organs, that governs particular bodily functions. Achieving the proper flow of qi is thought to create health and wellness. Qi maintains the dynamic balance of yin and yang, which are complementary opposites. According to Chinese medicine, everything in nature has both yin and yang.

Acupuncture is a good approach for many causes of foot/ walking pain (but not all). I have only commented about acupuncture (and not massage) as that is an area of expertise. ...Read more

There are other repair methods in case the tendon has retracted but this is something you need to see a podiatrist or foot and ankle orthopedist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Are there any dangers of doing acupuncture by my self after learning needle insertion and the points? What is the worst thing that could happen?
Bad idea: Popular 5-6 years ago, a large multi-center study published in 12/2008 showed there was no difference in success rates with ivf in couples that did acupuncture vs. Not doing acupuncture. In my experience, that is true, but the one benefit I have seen is that it definitely relaxes you prior to the procedure. Needs to be done by an experienced person. If done wrong, shown to decrease success rates. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
