I live in Newport, OR and would like a lisst of physicians in the northwest who use OssaTron. I have had very painful plantar fasciitis since Sept. 1991. I believe it started with a sharp stone bruise on my feet, especially the right one. I have spent hundreds of $ on various devices, Mayo Clinic, acupuncturists, podiatrists, surgeons, internests, ad infinitum. I am very anxious to see if OssaTron would help me. I am so limited that I cannot enjoy the surrounding forest, seasides, etc. Thank you.
