Dr.s - I know that a criteria for ESWT is localized pain at the insertion point. Is classic morning pain also a criteria? Thankyou

In the beginning I would apply the same criteria such as heel spur syndrome. Now So long as the patient has insertional pain at the calcaneus I will do the procedure. When i do heel spur surgery the criteria is still first step pain in the morning. This isn't the cast with ESWT.
