wow, that is great to hear.

What is the difference between OssaTron and ESWT?

If it becomes FDA approved, will insurance companies help with the cost of having it done?

Can someone tell me how OssaTron is different from Ultra Sound treatments?

Ultra-Sound treatment don't have the depth of penetration to the area.
Ultra- Sound uses sound waves to help increase blood flow to the injured area. ESWT uses shock waves (pressure of water focused in a .5 to .7 area of treatment to increase circulation . Ultra sound is has very little depth penetration to the treatment area. I will go into more detail if this doesn't answer the question.
