What about ESWT for Bursitis?

Posted by Kim B. on 3/20/01 at 23:35 (042020)

Would someone with Bursitis benefit from the use of ESWT?

Is Retrocalcaneal Bursitis the same as the general term 'bursitus'

Enlightenment needed as you can see. :-) Any info appreciated.

If it is at the insertional of the achilles tendon. Yes. This would be the same treatment as chronic insertional tendonitis.

Dr. Z., Please put that in Layman's terms for me. As you know, I am medicated and I can't understand your response. Can you elaborate for me?
