Who knows a specialist doctor of PF in Holland

Posted by Lian van Uden on 5/06/01 at hrmin (046763)

As you see I am from Holland and I am looking for someone who can help me with my plantar fasciitis. My foot hurts about 8 years now. I have tried a lot of orthics in my shous. The only thing that gives some relief is a viscoheel. I have started massage since a month, but I cant tell yet if it helps. I have visited different doctors, but none of them took my complaint serous or could help me. So Who knows a good doctor in Holland?
Thank you very much

lian you seem to have a problem many of us have experienced here in the USA. there are surely some good doctors in holland for your condition. go to your search engine and look under Plantar Fasciaitis or Podiatrist. Many of the doctors should have a web site. ESWT originated in Germany i think so their should be numerous foot specialist there. Check out the websites of some of the manufactures of ESWT machines as they will probably list doctors who use their equipment (Sonoccur, Norland,Healthtronics and various others). Scott has listed on the board somewhere a list of manufactures of these machines. Doctors who use them should have a good understanding of PF. i think i read that ESWT is covered by all insurers in germany but i do not know about holland.
