ESWT - PF gone forever?? Side affects.

Posted by Ronnie C on 5/08/02 at 12:57 (083070)

Hi-
Saw the string of e-mails and no-one addressed whether or not ESWT heels PF forever. Does anyone know if it makes this terrible condition go away for good? Also, are there any side effects besides the potential pain in the heel, from the shock waves, a few days later? Thanks for your help.

Gone foreever. Side effects are some numbness whick temporary , some pain which is temporary. Black and blue from the local anesthesia. Twelve weeks to get relief. May need a second treatment. May need additional treatment. The results are an average of 92% pain reduction and vas score after one year follow up with the dornier epos
