Ultra Sonic Shock Wave Therapy

Posted by Ginger P. on 9/01/01 at 13:45 (058712)

Battling HSS and PF for over two years, had two nerve releases, and still
in so much pain every day..just wondering about this new therapy I have just heard about. Who does it, results, cost(at this point, this is really not an issue, if I could just get some relief)

Regarding Ginger P. A friend told me about Sonic Shock Therapy. Is this a permanent cure? I have terrible pain in my heel (spur) and heard horror stories about injections and surjury. Would like to know more about Sonic Shock Therapy. Any advise would be helpful.

Only questions are. Does it work? how well does it work? How much does it cost? How long are you laid up after the proceedure?

Have had shots once before and now the condition is reoccuring.

Also any information on any home remides would be appreciated

Thanks so much

Chip

Hi Ginger

It's just possible the doctors haven't responded because they know that you can find the answers on this website, by clicking on the ESWT link. Have you tried that, as I suggested?

Hi,

ESWT is the option to replace surgery . It is a non-invasive procedure for
chronic pf and or heel spur pain. We do in our office and have had very
effective pain relief over the past twenty two months. If there is any
specific information you can e-mail my ESWT coordination team at heelhelp
