Why isn't information getting out?

Since it appears that many doctors still do not know about ESWT as indicated by a recent post from one, why isn't the Podiatric and Orthopedic Societies making this information available to them?

Has any Medical Society either Podiatric or Orthopedic actually backed or formally voted on accepting ESWT as a treatment they, as a group, endorse?

Pauline,
Don't worry. Information about ESWT is going to be coming out fast and furiously over the next couple of months. Rumor has it that there is a NY Times article coming out in the next couple of weeks. Also, as baseball playoffs are nearing, I think you'll see some big-name pitchers being treated. ESWT is about to get A LOT of attention.
