I have recently found this web page and full of admiration of its scope. Wretched feet getting progressivelt worse, with heels spurs in both feet. Complicated by chronic arthritus in both great toe joints. I note lots of comments, good & bad about surgery. My question which I wonder if anyone can address, though I'm the one IN England (!) is can anyone suggest specialists over here. Have not found such pages in UK. Well just a chance. Good wishes.

I'm afraid I can't suggest any specalists. Depends on your local NHS who you see, you could ask your GP to see a podiatrist (as opposed to an orthopod, but not every health practice has access to a podiatrist)
There are a few places in the UK that offer ESWT, you might like to read up on that Click on the ESWT link on the board.
http://www.ovingclinic.co.uk are based near Chichester in West Sussex and another one Chelsea clinic in London. You can get birkenstock shoes from their shop in Covent garden. If you order online get them from the German site (they're cheaper and secure)
Hope this helps
