Does ESWT "dissolve" heel spurs?

Posted by Ardee W. on 5/29/02 at 01:25 (085568)

I have not read here or elsewhere that it does, but was wondering. Thanks for any doctor's replies!

Hi Ardee:

ESWT does not disolve heel spurs. It sets up the healing process for the soft tissue.

I thought that was the case, but wasn't sure.
