Having ESWT treatment next Tuesday in London

Posted by Pete R on 5/03/02 at 04:38 (082265)

Are there any do's and don't immediately following ESWT treatment. e.g should i still stretch / stay off feet for a couple of days etc.

I realise my own body will tell me what to and not to do but any advice but be appreciated.

Hi Pete:
We generally tell our patients to avoid running or any activity that requires impact on the feet. You can streatch and can also walk with no problem. I wish you success. I'm sure you'll do great.

Remember it can take time for the original painful problem to go away sometime 12 weeks or more. Take it easy
