plantar fasciitas

Posted by sherry T on 8/29/02 at 17:47 (093904)

I have suffered many years with plantar fasciitas. I have had many cortizone shots,thearpy,night splints,orthotics. I have been told the next thing would be endoscopic surgery. Would you suggest the same treatment or some other treatment.

I would suggest ESWT . This is the non-invasive , non-surgical procedure that has none of the serious complication that can happen with endoscopic foot surgery. We have been using this procedure for the past three years.

I think anytime anyone recommends ESWT, they should also mention the cost, and the fact that most insurance doesn't cover it.

. It is in the few thousand dollar range depending whether two feet or one foot. and yes not all insurance will cover ESWT This is also stated in the ESWT section on this web site
