We are trying to put together a list of insurance companies that pay for ESWT. Did your insurance pay for this procedure?

Glad to hear that you are experiencing some relief from the ESWT treatment. If you care to post your e-mail address here maybe somebody who is interested in the treatment can contact you directly.
