Are some eswt machines more effective than others?

Posted by Rose M on 2/27/03 at 11:59 (110990)

Recently had one procedure on left foot and considering doing the right one. After reading the postings on the different machines, I am wondering if some high intensity machines are more effective than others? Also, it appears that some people go for 2 or 3 treatments. My treatment was one, lasting about 20 minutes, then wait and watch for progress over a 12 wk. period. Would appreciate your expertise re: this treatment

Rose:

This is a hotly debated issue. Each machine has its proponents who may assert the superiority of a machine or protocol. There is inadequate evidence to support that notion.
