At Shand Podiatry in Aberdeen, we are proud to offer a specialized treatment known as Podiatric Acupuncture.

As part of our commitment to providing comprehensive and holistic foot care, this treatment combines the principles of traditional acupuncture with podiatric expertise to address a wide range of foot and lower limb conditions. With our skilled podiatrists and a focus on patient well-being, we strive to deliver exceptional care and results.

Podiatric Acupuncture is a therapeutic technique that involves the insertion of fine needles into specific points on the feet and lower legs. These points, also known as acupuncture points or acupoints, correspond to different areas of the body and have the potential to influence various physiological processes. By stimulating these points, we aim to restore balance, promote healing, and alleviate pain or discomfort.

One of the key advantages of Podiatric Acupuncture is its ability to target pain and inflammation directly at the source. It can be particularly beneficial for conditions such as plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis, heel pain, and neuromas. By stimulating the acupoints, we can help improve blood circulation, reduce inflammation, and trigger the release of endorphins, the body’s natural painkillers.

Moreover, Podiatric Acupuncture is a safe and minimally invasive treatment option. The needles used are incredibly thin, and the procedure is generally well-tolerated by patients. Our podiatrists are highly trained and experienced in performing acupuncture, ensuring that the treatment is administered with precision and care. We prioritize patient comfort and strive to create a relaxing environment during each session.

During your initial consultation at Shand Podiatry, our podiatrists will conduct a thorough assessment of your condition and medical history. This allows us to determine if Podiatric Acupuncture is a suitable treatment option for you. We believe in a personalized approach to care, tailoring our treatments to meet your specific needs and goals.

Throughout the Podiatric Acupuncture session, our podiatrists will identify the most relevant acupoints based on your condition. The needles will be gently inserted into these points, and you may experience a mild sensation or tingling. The needles will typically remain in place for a short duration, and you will be closely monitored throughout the session to ensure your comfort and safety.

The number of sessions required may vary depending on the severity and nature of your condition. Our podiatrists will discuss a treatment plan with you, outlining the recommended frequency and duration of sessions. In some cases, Podiatric Acupuncture may be combined with other podiatric treatments or therapies to optimize outcomes and provide comprehensive care.
