Since so many sites are popping up that are now providing ESWT to patients,
I think it's very important for anyone posting about their treatment to include the following information:

1. What machine was used for the treatment?

2. Where was the treatmemt performed Surgical center, Dr. Office, Other?

3. Was any anaesthesia needed? What type, General, local, total foot
block?

4. How many times did you have the treatment?

5. How long post treatment are you?

6. What is your current pain level?

7. Did you experience any brusing, or swelling after the treatment.

Add any other information you think useful and please follow up to let us know how you are doing. The follow up is very important.
Thanks

Good idea

This could be added to the ESWT progress report page. Most patients that do report include this information to some degree. There could be instructions on the ESWT progress page to cover this information if it isn't already asked for
