Plantar fasciitis can be difficult to treat and can result in prolonged chronic cases.

When patients are not assessed correctly, the diagnosis for heel pain may be incorrect. Practitioners often default to a  diagnosis targeting plantar fascia pathology.

Whitfield Reaves has been teaching and practicing acupuncture in sports medicine for 40 years. In this webinar he will be sharing some creative and skillful methods for both assessment and treatment for plantar fasciitis.

The techniques taught in this webinar will be immediately applicable to clinical practice. 

This webinar is brought to you by the Acupuncture Division of the Canadian Physiotherapy Association (CPA).
