Feet pain due the side effects of drugs taken by cancer patients cured by acupuncture. Hamburg, Germany, researchers found that cancer patients who use acupuncture not only reduction in their pain but nerves also showing signs of recovering. Cancer patients given chemotherapy damages the nerves of his leg. 10 sessions of acupuncture were six people in three months. Their results were compared to the results of the five persons who were not attend their season.
Well, I had really bad achilles tendonitis a few years ago. The acupuncture did nothing for the pain however. What did help it a little was a chiropractor who used electrodes as well as VERY painful massage to fix the muscles in the feet. What ultimately helped me however was the solution of a podiatrist who recommended inserts in my shoes so as to align my walk properly. Took about two to three months and my walk was back to perfect again. He'd predicted I may get 90% back. I got 100%.
I'd say the acupuncture was more painful at times even than the foot pain. Did not provide any relief for me. Doesn't say that it may provide some to someone else. I still have to see the evidence for it however. I've visited two acupuncturists who came very highly recommended to me, one in Vancouver, BC Canada and another in Dubai, UAE. The one in Dubai used suction cups as well on my back. Felt as though I was being tortured. Not my cup of tea at all.
