EXTRACORPOREAL SHOCK WAVE THERAPY

Posted by DEB on 1/28/03 at 23:35 (107222)

IN OCTOBER I HAD SURGERY FOR A BONE SPUR THAT HAS RESULTED IN MY BEING OFF OF WORK SINCE THEN. I GOT A STAFF INFECTION IN THE DEEP TISSUE OF MY HEEL WHICH RESULTED IN 2 ADDITONAL SURGERYS. TODAY THE 28TH OF JAN. I WAS TREATED IN MY OTHER FOOT BY THE SHOCK WAVE TREATMENT. I AM WONDERING IF THE SHOCK TREATMENT CAN BE USED IN MY INITIAL FOOT FOR THE CONSTANT PAIN? THANKS

I have used ESWT on failed heel spur and resolved the pain. The cause of your pain would have to be the plantar fascia for ESWT to work
