there is no ESWT in NZ so ...help!

Posted by Jan C on 3/25/01 at 20:43 (042453)

Dr Z - after talking to you on this site - it appears that I have tried everything except ESWT which we do not have in New Zealand.

How much would it cost if I came to the US (I am desperate!!!) how many treatments would I need - and at what intervals?

I also noticed today that the UK may have the same thing. Is that true - how much - and more importantly - how successful compared to the US. I have family in the UK so at least I could get free board!

Any info and comments would be appreciated.

They have ESWT in Austraila which would be more cost effective.

Hi,

If they have the treatment in the outback country then that is much more cost-effective. Go to the web site for the International Society for European Shockwave Treatment . They list the site in Europe, and the entire world. They even list my location in Woodbury, New Jersey

Jan,

I think this is the link to the International Society for shock wave therapy Dr Z mentioned. I didn't notice it myself under the link ISMST on the ESWT page. Thanks Dr Z.

The below site list the members

http://www.ismst.com/members.htm

Also, HMT which makes the Ossatron list a distributor for the Australizn and New Zealand market. I didn't see any mention about New Zealand under the ISMST. If you give them a call, they may be able to tell you if anyone is using ESWT in New Zealand. The name is Stone Services Limited.

Or just look at the genteral HMT site

You may wish to contact Dr. Ross Davidson (orthopaedic surgeon) at the Adidas Sports Clinic in Auckland (http://www.sportsmed.net.nz/) and tell him that you received his name from me. He is very knowledgable about ESWT and may be able to assist you in arranging treatment closer to home.
