With this new shock wave treatment, I was wondering how the insurance companies are reacting. My Doctor says I am a good candidate but I am worries about expense. I have been getting shots , actually two so far, for about a year. Luckily I have a high tolerance for pain. Any how I have read so much, and I would love to have this heeel spur be zapped into outer space. Thanks.

I would have the insurance person from your doctor's office give you a cpt code and a written letter of explanation. Call your insurance company and
see what they say.
