Re: John are you cured from an Ossatron Treatment or what??Posted by John G on 1/13/99 at 00:00 (003341)
Catherine, The OssaTron is a rather large machine very similar to the machine used to treat kidney stones (lithotripter), that focusses high energy shock waves (not electrical) on an area that is not healing. It actually produces microscopic fracturing of the target tissue that physically allows the growth of new blood vessels into the area which then allows the repair and healing response to proceed. Clinical studies from the 40 sites around the world have demonstrated a 80-90% success rate in treating PF, tennis elbow and other orthopaedic problems. The proceedure is called Orthotripsy and there is a web site(not working yet) that has more info. Try them at Orthotripsy.com. Good Luck!
