I know of no contraindicaton for ESWT for internal fixation of the ankle.

I am quoting from the book Musculoskeletal Shockwave Therapy, page 206
This is for treatment for non-union fracture. ' A high proportion of patients already had the appropriate internal fixation in position and if this showed no signs of loosening it was LEFT IN PLACE

I hope that his helps you with your decision for ESWT in the heel area.

Realize that the internal fixatoin was in the f2 line of treatment . The heel and the ankle are two different sites.

Go to the web site for the iswt. This can be found on the ESWT annoucement board within heelspurs.com web site. I believe you can also order this book on amazon.com library

Very good book and has helped alot. This in my opinion is a must for the ESWT treating doctor.
