OssaTron is not indicated for pregnant women. Nicole had OssaTron in Canada in Feb 2000 with 7 other heelspurs.com visitors. Turns out Nicole was pregnant. Here are the results:

Scott:

I think that caution and legal concerns cause the lack of indication of
ESWT during pregnancy. Anesthesia potentially used during ESWT really would be the real issue. Seems that the potential for shock waves applied to the bottom of the foot to have any effect on pregancy to be miniscule at best (except for believers in reflexology).

Probaby very true. A local anesthetic could be used. Or no anesthetic. How about the first birth during ESWT . Now that would be first. and probaby the last treatment for that doctor.
