Another EWST newspaper article... baseball player treated

Posted by Beverly on 4/23/01 at 11:09 (045440)

Hi all!

This morning on the front page of the metro section of my local newspaper was another EWST article. This time it was about a pro baseball player who had almost given up the game due to his PF. According to the article, he first went to Tornoto for EWST treatment. That significantly reduced his pain level. He had his second treatment in Dallas since it is now available there. From the news article, it sounds like he is feeling quite well. The news story said his doctor was an orthopedic surgeon in Dallas, Dr. Cook.
For me, this sounds promising. I'm adding Dr. Cook to my very short list of Texas doctors. I would think that whomever the professional ballplayers go to would be a top doc.

My own appt. with my new doc (not Dr. Cook) is this week. At the moment, my ankles are more problematic than my feet. So, I want to get a handle on that first.
Thanks,
Beverly

Thanks,

His name is Dr. Charles Cook and I am told he is a foot/ankle specialist.

FYI -- I had bilateral ESWT performed by Dr. Cook on April 11th in Dallas. Will update you as time passes.

Howdy Texan,

Thanks a lot. I printed it out. Here's the link if anyone wants to read it. It may only work today. It will probably move to the archive section tomorrow.

Hi Beverly.

I don't want to change the subject, but what's up with your ankles? The last week or so, my heels are actually less sore, but my ankles are killing me!! I see my pod today, and hope he can find some answers... just wondering what your story is...??

THanks...Val.

Val,

Look over at my post on the Treatment section called 'New doctor/More aggressive Treatment. It tells my latest ankle saga.

My saga with my ankles began a few months into the PF. I developed Posterior Tibial Tendonitis. Left leg mostly; some in right. That is pain in the inner ankle.

See ya,
Beverly
