Take a look at the ESWT locations on this web site. I am not aware of anyone at this time, but I haven't taken a look at the ESWT locations for some time. I am now certified to use the ossatron and have been using the orbasone for over eighteen months. SO if you want information on our ESWT in New Jersey program in New Jersey just give my coordinators a call. You can even e-mail them at heelhelp@bee.net . You are going to find that ESWT on the average will give patients either a dramatic improvement or a cure in about 75% of the time is it used for chronic proximal plantar fasciitis/heel spur syndrome.

Hi Monte,

MGH in Boston has completed their ESWT trials. They originally thought they might begin offering treatment by this fall, but I'm not so sure it will happen on time. Good luck

Add six months to that date. Just the way things work. If they say fall just add six months.
