Calf Pain Relief at Ackerman Acupuncture & Massage (in Blaine, MN)

Calf Pain Worse with Standing or Walking?

Often pain in the legs, particularly in the calves occurs at work for people whose careers involve doing a lot of standing or walking all day. Leg pain is common in these careers:

  • Nurses
  • Factory workers
  • Restaurant workers
  • Construction workers
  • Cosmetologists (Hair/ Beauty salon)

Why Get Acupuncture?

Acupuncture can help stop calf pain before it spreads to the fascia in the plantar and becomes Plantar Fasciitis, an extremely painful issue. This pain can get in the way of working for many people.

PubMed Research Finds 80% Success Rate with Acupuncture for Plantar Fasciitis

Why Treat Calf and Foot Pain A.S.A.P.?

Left untreated, Plantar Fasciitis becomes chronic (long-term issue) which takes more acupuncture treatments to resolve.

Acute (short-term issue) Plantar Fasciitis usually takes no more than 3-4 acupuncture treatments to resolve.

What Does an Acupuncture Treatment Involve?

For Calf pain and/ or foot pain, acupuncture treatment will involve tiny acupuncture needles the size of a human hair.

It may also include electric stimulation (e-stim) which involves a machine being hooked-up to the inserted acupuncture needles, usually in the local area of the leg and/or foot and possibly other distal (further away) points.

E-stim is similar to an acupuncturist continuously stimulating the needle with their hand and serves the function of allowing multiple needles to be stimulated simultaneously, usually for about 20 minutes.
