Not that I am aware of - I do not think that is its intention.

It is my understanding that a candidate for ESWT really needs to be preety certain that PF is present. Unfortunately, there are so many factors that can produce TTS symptoms, that determining what the original problem was is difficult. I have tingling sensations, not only in my feet but sometimes even in my hands. My PF has thrown off my gait to such an extent that I have also developed a bulging disk in my back. The back muscles become tight, swollen? and then nerves are affected and in no time there are zappiing senssations in my feet, and as I said, sometimes in my hands. There are also nerves in my feet, and when they become inflamed the nerves also start firing off. Which condition came first? That's the million dollar question.
