Has anyone had any experience using ESWT for tts? Is ESWT even used to treat tts?
Thanks,
Terry

No - ESWT is used for insertion point pain in PF. It is not used for tarsal tunnel

Terry:

One of the main contraindications for ESWT is the application over a nerve.
As such, ESWT would not be used for tts, carpal tunnel syndrome, near or over any significant nerve trunk.
