For almost eleven months, I had been having chronic pain in my Achilles tendons in my ankles. I play tennis quite often, on the varsity tennis team in high school and recreationally. The pain kept getting worse, especially during tennis season when I was playing two and three hour matches every day. I tried going to the conventional doctor, and they gave me stretches and told me to use Advil, but instead of getting better, my ankles got worse. My mom suggested that I try acupuncture, so I did. Just after a few short weeks (only 8 visits !!!), my ankles are so much better and I can go back to playing tennis again.
Thank you so much!
