Encouraging News for People with Heel Pain

Posted Dec 03 2008 7:20am

A recent study suggests that using a dry needling technique with guided ultrasound combined with a steroid injection may be a very effective way to relieve heel pain (Dry needling is a technique that creates a small amount of bleeding from plunging a needle multiple times into painful tissue. It creates a healing response.).  It's a small study without the gold standard design - double blind, placebo controlled - but the method relieved heel pain in 42 of the 44 subjects within three weeks. How long the results will last is unknown.

Here's more info on the study.
