Post ESWT Treatment

Posted by Paul Clark on 11/29/02 at 07:47 (101390)

I recently completed the ESWT treatments at Bayshore Clinic 9/27. My question concerns how quickly to began wearing arch supports after the ESWT treatments. I've been wearing Dr.Kiper's Silicone Orthotics for about two years, but they have caused some bad problems with calf cramping and muscle spasms. I want to get back into a more traditional arch support or orthotic. I recently purchased some Power Step Inserts.I can only wear the Power Step Inserts for a few hours currently or my problem left foot will begin hurting. Do you think I should just tape my foot the remainder of the day and keep attempting to build up more time gradually with the Power Step Inserts?
