    Hi All
    Recently I posted a question as to the efficacy of acupuncture in podiatric complaints, and many people said it was very good with/for Morton's Neuroma symptoms.
    Could anyone specify the points they use for this and is any dry needling also associated with it?
    Cheers

    Hi again Mahtay,

    The TCM's hate folk doing recipe's on conditions (your neuroma and mine are different and need to be treated individually). Nevertheless, not being a TCM, there are some common points that I'd use and others that will vary according to the indivbidual.

    I'd needle the associated intermet space and check around for small TP's in the interossei and I'd again do the Bafeng pts. After that you'd vary a lot from person to person.
    I'd like to here a TCM approach.

    Cheers
    Shane
