Specialist acupuncture for treatment of the feet and legs


Acupuncture is an ancient therapy. Studies have shown it to be highly beneficial in the treatment of foot and leg conditions.

The acupuncture techniques used here at John Collins Footcare Clinic are known as 'modern' or 'western' acupuncture. Acupuncture may be used as all or part of your chiropody treatment.

In this procedure, sterile, disposable needles are inserted at individually determined points of the body where they are left for a few minutes. Pain in the foot and ankle frequently responds to acupuncture.

There are various foot and leg conditions that may respond well to acupuncture, these include:

  • Planter Fasciitis

  • Heel pain

  • Morton's Neuroma

  • Planter Digital Neuritis

  • Arthritic joint pain

  • Shin splints

  • Restless legs

  • Post fracture pain

  • Stiff joints & muscles

Acupuncture is generally a painless procedure but when discomfort does occur it is usually less than an ordinary injection and usually lasts only a moment. Some patients may experience other sensations such as feeling hot or cold or pins and needles.
