Feet Pain

Posted by Dede A on 6/28/01 at 20:23 (051790)

Have spurs on both, cracked them last year, had surgery to remove portion of fascia, fractures healed but not my feet. Now have pain in my toes and heels. Considering the ECPW treatment with Dr. Zuckerman in NJ. Should I do this or go to Ortho foot specialist???

Its interesting that you 'cracked' them both. Its not very common to fracture the heel spurs. ESWT should only be used after all conservative treatments have failed. You need to see someone to evaluate you and discuss treatment options.
