No Antiinflammatories: Post ESWT

Posted by Sherrie M. on 5/15/01 at 08:07 (047784)

I just read the question about no anti-inflammatories after ESWT, what are you supposed to do for pain. I have been taking ibuprofen- please don't tell me that I am doing myself some harm.Did this question mean no cortizone injections? Help, this worries me!

It isn't an written in stone that you can't take NSAID. It is used after foot surgery in many patients. Just use your commone sense and take NSAID as needed
